TOYS Léa Tirabasso


TOYS is play, perfection, human tragedy’s disguise in the form of a permanent celebration. It is the search for pleasure in order to make light of the wait, losing oneself within a group, celebrating bad at the beginning of the sparkling century.

The beauty of the absurd, philosophy and popular culture are all equal influences which inspired the young Luxembourg choreographer, Lea Tirabasso to develop this creation. This is an existential and philosophical reflection on humans and their constant search for pleasure.

Concept and choreography: Léa Tirabasso | Performance: Joss Carter, James Finnemore, Georges Maikel Pires Monteiro, Elsa Petit, Rosie Terry Toogood | Music creation: Martin Durov | Light design: Krischan Kriesten | Dramaturgy: Guillaume Pigé | Project manager: Mathis Junet | Production: Lipstick Traces a.s.b.l. | Commission: The Place London | Supports: TROIS C-L – Centre de Création Chorégraphique, Mierscher Kulturhaus, Fondation Indépendance, stART-up Oeuvre Nationale de Secours Grande Duchesse Charlotte, The Place London, Arts Council England, Dance-City Newcastle, TripSpace London, JoJo – Oulu Dance Centre, Ministère de la Culture Luxembourgeois, Le Pacifique – CDC Grenoble, Le Grand Studio de Bruxelles | Special tanks: Michael Barnes, Lewis Wilkins, Luke Divall, Thomas Stern (UCL), Laja Field, Brea Cali, Guillaume Pigé et toute l’équipe du TROIS C-L

Je suis assis avec une canette en étain à la main — Bernard Baumgarten


Invited by the CNSMD – Music and Dance Academy of Lyon, choreographer and TROIS C-L artistic director Bernard Baumgarten worked with the Jeune Ballet (Young Ensemble) on this piece. Built on David Bowie’s music, this creation is first of all an encounter between an established choreographer and young artists: an eye full of experience on bodies full of life, and willing to push their limits. As they explore their potential as performers, this piece also prepares those young people to a professional dance career through getting accustomed to the stage and developing their own artistic sensitivity.

Choreography: Bernard Baumgarten | Performers: Maha Awad, Sophie Billon, Louna Delbouys-Roy, Kinga Furmaniak, Nagaline Gomis, Yannis Brissot, Julien Gadaut, Julien Meslage, Alexandre Nodari | Costumes : Maïté Chantrel | Ballet Master: Gail Communal van Sleen | Music: David Bowie | Partners: CNSMD Lyon – Etablissement public d’enseignement supérieur sous tutelle du Ministère de la culture français, TROIS C-L

The Passion of Andrea 2 Simone Mousset


The Passion of Andrea 2 is the new creation for three dancers by Luxembourgish choreographer Simone Mousset, winner of the Lëtzebuerger Danzpräis 2017.

It is like trying to hold soap when it’s wet. It is the solution that constantly escapes us. It is magic trick, deadly game, dance performance, farce, debate, musical, sci-fi monologue, all in one. Masquerading as a sequel to an earlier, non-existent version of itself, The Passion of Andrea 2 is a mischievous con artist of a dance piece about feelings of uneasiness, the inability to fully understand, and the painful desire for more. In a whirlwind of tours de force as skillful as frivolous, three figures in curly wigs are propelled through odd loops of burlesque scenes and increasingly disconcerting worlds of impossibilities.
