Our company works with animals, men, women, children. All these personalities work together, their performance creating and inventing music, acrobatics, songs, and dances, around and along with this animal presence.
This joint synergy raises new artistic and human bridges. Thus, in our shows, the animal has a guiding, observing and questioning role. The animals of our company are not merely there because we wanted to include them. They are a real part of our Tale.
We constantly try to get rid of clichés, to lay new eyes on life. The animals of the Baro d’evel company are real creative partners, we do not put them on the stage as human helpers, we put them on stage for what they are.
To work, play, invent, and create with animals is mainly to live with them and explore new relationships. They help us develop a more sensitive perception of the world.
Our artistic approach is inspired by this everyday life at their side. Their behaviour on stage naturally flows from their personalities, their affinities with each other, and the relationship with each artist. We create poetic forms exploring the themes of identity, otherness, bonding and life. For me, to share the stage with animals is literally to reconnect with what it means to “act”. They allow for artists and spectators to be carried in the moment. By their side, we must try to be real, to sincerely own our emotions, to be in the rightness of the moment, in a delicate mixture of control and abandonment.
