BIG SISTERS by Théo Mercier & Steven Michel

After Affordable Solution for Better Living, a domestic drama in which an individual fabricates his masculine identity by building an Ikéa shelf, visual artist Théo Mercier and choreographer Steven Michel are continuing their joint exploration of biopower. BIG SISTERS is a piece conceived and designed with four dancers aged 23 to 65, Laura Belgrano, Lili Buvat, Marie de Corte and Mimi Wascher. Imagined like an experimental film and based on Les Guérillères, Monique Wittig’s utopian epic, BIG SISTERS unfolds like a cinematographic and kaleidoscopic fresco on women and their representations. Alternating between self-portraits and staged portraits, science fiction and historical reenactments, BIG SISTERS attempts to highlight the complex choreography of gazes which are at stake in the staging of female bodies, inviting everyone to become aware of their power and to put it to work.
