MONJOUR

Overcoming the border between you and me: getting to meet you, to never get lost in the crowd again. […] Finding a place where being together is possible. […] Something that will involve becoming alive with one another, and holiday will be possible.J. Grotowski (Holiday: The Day That Is Holy)MONJOUR was brought to life in 2019, it questioned itself in 2020 and came to a new life in 2021.MONJOUR is a “contemporary cartoon”, made of bodies in flesh and blood, led by Silvia Gribaudi’s irony with Matteo Maffesanti’s visual complicity, by Francesca Ghermandi’s drawings, Leonardo Benetollo’s stage light design, and by acrobatic performers: Riccardo Guratti, Timothée-Aïna Meiffren, Salvatore Cappello, Nicola Simone Cisternino, and Fabio Magnani.What is the interdependence between the audience and the performers?What is the mutual responsibility between an audience member and an artist?MONJOUR is a day to exist together in disorientation.But what are we ready to give as long as we can continue to exist?
