Le Groupe O

Katherine Poneuve

Lara Marcou

A solo performance in which theater, dance and songs mingle, a “new” Snow White tale running away from something other than feminine jealousy, to flourish into something other than being a servant of little men, and to conclude without a princely kiss.

A beautiful escape that tells us not only about the radical emancipation of a woman, but also about the art of being oneself, about wild dreams, about freedom.

Protean and forest solo.

Company presentation

Groupe O was created in 2016 by Lara Marcou and Marc Vittecoq to organize SITU, a festival of theatrical and cinematographic creations on the Côte d’Albâtre (Normandy) in France.
Lara Marcou and Marc Vittecoq were associated artists at the Préau – Centre dramatique national de Vire (National Drama Center of Vire)- for the period 2019-2022.

Groupe O defends in its pieces a writing on the stage. Depending on the moment, Groupe O works with amateurs, in schools or hospitals, uses the material produced for creation, brings together the different forces that nourish life and art.

In the press

Lara Marcou is one of the newcomers of this Printemps des comédiens. (...) A blowout, a one-way towards yourself that she says it’s inspired by American feminists but speaks to us infinitely.
Hernandez / Lokko

Lokko/ Valéria Hernandez

(..) We end up being wary of so -called "feminist" shows, like those who "make theater" to talk about the theater. The former are often mistaken by believing that it is enough for a good subject to make a good piece, and one wonders to whom the latter is talking. At the Festival Impatience, the Groupe O, however, has successfully combined both.
