Pour cette coproduction Midi-théâtre, la Cie Moost réunit trois artistes et un chien : Camille Denkinger, Latifeh Hadji, Marc Oosterhoff et Koutshik. Natures Mortes est un spectacle d’une heure mêlant théâtre, cirque et dressage canin approximatif dans une atmosphère de salle de fêtes ratées.

Ce spectacle est conçu pour se dérouler sur l’heure du midi – heure à laquelle, généralement, on mange. Un repas simple est donc servi aux spectateurs.rices, assis.es à des tables disposées autour de l’espace scénique. Toutefois si l’équipe du théâtre d’accueil n’est pas d’humeur cuisinière, il est aussi possible que la pièce se déroule dans le jeûne le plus total.

Vous n’assisterez pas à Natures Mortes sur le plateau d’un théâtre, mais plutôt dans son foyer – ou peut-être dans une salle gentiment mise à disposition par la paroisse de votre quartier. Vous pouvez y venir avec vos enfants, vos grands-parents, votre voisin.e, votre tante, votre cousin.e, votre garagiste, votre amoureux.euse ou votre avocat.e, … normalement, ça passe.

“This intimate performance is an attempt to dive into the endless adjustments a relationship between two people requires. A try to explore the fragility of human relationships and the need to cooperate in order to escape loneliness.

Through the prism of physical risk and the limits of the body, I want to create a vocabulary mixing dance and partner acrobatics, inspired by the non-verbal communication between two bodies.

The special set, which creates an intimacy between the audience and the performers, offers the audience a unique cinematic experience, during which they have the opportunity to observe humans in their solitary intimacy, as one would observe two rats in a laboratory cage.

The relationship between the two men is based on caring, listening and helping each other. The two performers being men, I wish to present a relationship that accepts weakness, doubt, rejects competition and gives room to a gentle clumsiness allowing the audience to smile.”

Creation 2016

«We live in a world in which the security of the individual is dictated to us in a direct and authoritarian way: no swimming, no climbing, no closing of doors, area under video surveillance….

Certain behaviours have been categorized as «risky» and unproductive to society, and are therefore prohibited.The individual’s ability to discern is dismissed, there is no trust in his or her ability to know what is or is not suitable for his or her abilities.

With Take Care ofYourself,I wanted to question this limit of personal risk-taking, by presenting perilous actions that a man undertakes of his own accord. I also wanted to create a piece in which the audience feels included. He and I together in the same game. Games inspired by popular games – such as drinking games – where tension is created by the fact that the result of the action is unknown to everyone.

Neither the audience nor I know what happens next. Several devices follow one another throughout the piece, each one allowing the audience to project a result, to imagine an outcome, positive or not, thus keeping it in continuous tension.»

Creation 2019

“I have always been interested in the relationship between the audience, its expectations and the actions that take place on stage. My research is based on devices that can combine these elements in a frontal way by creating a constant tension between them.

I’m not looking for the observer’s rest. I try to make him experience the uncertainty of the outcome of my promises. As long as they are unresolved, the audience is free to imagine all the possibilities.

Promises of Uncertainty bet that the tension preceding the action is more interesting than the action itself because it contains all its potentialities.”

Pallet(s) is a performance for 2 dancers, 20 pallets and 1 bottle of water. Through physical constraints, balancing games, construction and manipulation, the performers create a relationship of complicity that evolves throughout the piece. A subtle blend of functional exploration of movement, danger, sensitivity and humour.

“Companies like Ikea have literally designed products around pallets: his “Bang” cup has had three redesigns, each not for aesthetics, but to ensure that more cups would fit on a pallet. After the changes, it was possible to load 2,204 cups on a pallet, instead of the original 864, resulting in a 60% reduction in transportation costs. »

Biography

Born in 1990 and originally from Yverdon- les-Bains, he obtained a Bachelor’s degree in physical theater at the Accademia Teatro Dimitri in 2012.

After his studies, he spent six months in China training in martial arts and then continued his practice of free-running and circus acrobatics. During two years, he worked as an actor and in 2014, he was admitted at La Manufacture (Lausanne), and was part of the first batch of students in the Bachelor’s degree in Contemporary Dance. In 2016 Marc performs Take care of yourself, his first solo, at Les Quarts d’Heure de Sévelin.This solo based on physical risk was selected for the Tanzfactor 2018 tour, and also selected by BE FESTIVAL for two tours in Spain and in the United Kingdom. Since then, the show continues to be programmed all over the world (France, Lebanon, Switzerland, Spain, UK).

In 2017 and 2018, he collaborated with Cédric Gagneur and choreographed Palette(s) and La Caresse des pavés, two outdoors performances.

In 2019, he created his new solo piece: Promises of Uncertainty.

In 2020, during his presence at the MOMIX festival in France , Marc won the Junior Jury Prize for his playTake Care ofYourself and a Speciale Mention from the Professional Jury for his work.

Marc is currently working on a new project: Labrats. An intimate duo with Owen Winship, a Circassian performer.
