À L’Ouest


À L’Ouest

Leslie Bernard, Matthias Jacquin

Five brothers and sisters live together cheerfully. Drawing strength from their bonds, they organize their own fraternal society, but a tragedy occurs their destiny.  

The collective writing of À l’Ouest intertwines all the whirlwinds of life: the lightness of life, the complicity, the happiness to love us, but also the memories and wounds.   

This funny and moving family chronicle is captured with immense accuracy by the actors. Forged by their work on stage, this creation by the BAJOUR collective bears the promise of a trademark: a theatre full of humour, imaginative and brilliantly embodied. 

Company presentation

L. Bernard, J. Derivaz, M. Jacquin, H. Manuel, G. Slowick, A. Virapin and A. Zouane created their collective in 2015 after graduating from the École Supérieure du Théâtre National de Bretagne. In turn director, actor, author, musician and set designer, these seven artists who make up BAJOUR are bursting with energy and creativity. Their theatre is one of stage writing where actors' proposals and improvisations feed their language. With them, intimacy clashes with the absurdity of our society, in a jubilant energy that leaves the performers to their own interpretation.
