Mazùt is a piece that represents a turning point in the company’s research trajectory; it allowed Baro d’evel to continue opening up its languages. It was the starting point for the creations that followed, Bestias and the diptych Là, sur la falaise.

Paradoxically, this piece has been little seen, which is why we wish to bring it back on tour.

Mazùt was born from the duet of Blaï Mateu Trias and Camille Decourtye on stage, but the solidity of the piece allows the company to consider a first experience of transmitting a repertoire with the performers Valentina Cortese and Julien Cassier.

Two beings in search of their inner self
because humanity overcomes them
because they have lost their instinct
because the world goes too fast,
too many words, too many letters.

They want to find their first sensations
preparing, seeking in the ins and outs of daily life
the doors open towards the beginning of all
before the standing men,
before the thinking men,
be no more than four legs
breath, blow, breathe,
find the first breath
the starting point
be a being who breathes
and looks at the world.
