After Fenêtres Bolze presents at VIE 2015 his new work that has the same structure of first one: Bachir is back, younger and older at the same time. Mathurin Bolze and Karim Messaoudi stage the double presence inside Bachir’s cube. Who is this second and strange presence? Is it just a shadow? A brother? An imaginary friend? Is Bachir going mad? Or, rather, is he just dreaming? As it is in Dostoevskij or Poe’s novels, the strangeness of this double presence rises doubts.  Bachir goes up and down inside his cracking house-cage:  a place in mind but also a real one. Imaginary visions are suspended in time, solitude and fraternity.

Mathurin Bolze graduated from the French National Circus School, began his artistic career with the “Anomalies” theatre company, and he have collaborated with such coryphaeus of contemporary dance as Josef Nadj, Kitsou Dubois and François Verret. His style represents the fusion of acrobatics, contemporary dance, literature, and technique of parabolic flight that astronauts learn to get adapted to the state of zero gravity.
