Dis-moi la vérité (Tell me the truth) by Autour du Mime (France)

This piece portrays a couple’s dysfunctional relationship, marred by a lack of communication, without words or tender gestures. Both stand their ground and feel themselves in the right. Who is the victim and who is the executioner? Dense and almost palpable, this feeling sweeps in and is tangible in the slightest movement of each character.

Autour du Mime Company was created in 1997 by Sara Mangano and Pierre-Yves Massip to explore the art of mime and its extended forms of expression. They met at the Marcel Marceau School in 1994, from which they graduated with honours in 1997. They performed in the M. Marceau Company for eight years and assisted the Master in his solo tours and workshops.
