Saint Junien, 2018
It was beautiful. We stayed next to the river, made a new friend, met some old ones, ate lots of baguette, played ping pong, rehearsed in a completely yellow room in a place called blue star, learned some french for the show and played with surtitles for the first time.
And we won a prize: a two-week residency and performance in Champ Libre Festival in France. We are going AAAAAAAll the way to France. Many thanks to our dramaturg DANIEL GOLDMANN who put up with us for a whole week and to the Jerwood foundation, who funded our residency!
So that’s it. That’s our new show. Talking about airplanes and ships, king prawns and babies, loneliness and getting older, voices in our head, my voice, your voice and all the voices and all the other voices.
Here we are.
This is our space.
In the big theater in Birmingham.
Long days and short nights.
And the most amazing rehearsal space
we have ever been together.
2 days before the festival starts.
5 days till our performance.

Tante & Tante are trying to float together again
like on the photo taken almost 25 years ago
preparing our new piece for BE Festival
is an invaluable experience
keep being together
and being apart
facing the camera with distrust
and with the security
that even if the world falls apart
we will still float together
Back in June, we won the early ideas audience prize!
We are going to go back to Birmingham and present a new show!
Thank you BE FESTIVAL! We are so happy we are coming back again!
