PROPOSAL FOR THE BILLEBAUDE REVIEW

THE ARM-BODY BEAR

WEDNESDAY 19 OCTOBER 2016, TO 19H30

A “SNAP” CONFERENCE OF THE STANDING SINGE COMPANY
IN COLLABORATION WITH THE REVIEW Billebaude

At the heart of prehistory, the bear and the Paleolithic men shared the same caves, the same territories, the same prey and perhaps the same fears… The bear, a living paradox: it is the animal to which we confronted clinch, to test his virility and bravery. Western civilization has shaped the relationship with animals in a duality between wild and domestic. All those who resisted (the wolf, the bear, the large predators competing with men) fell into the camp of the enemy.

Today, in a threatened nature, they are sublimated but also made fragile and harmless, like the figure of the Teddy Bear, a teddy bear friend of humans. Where is the bear in all of this? It is during this very embodied conference that we will revisit this question.

Staging: Jade Duviquet
With: Pierre Olivier Dittmar, historian, Anne de Malleray, collection director of the Billebaude review and Cyril Casmèze, “zoomorphic” acrobatic actor, Jade Duviquet, actress and director.
