Cascade tells the story of a family which, further to a floods, find herself in a house submerged by waters.
Difficult not to make a link with the events that happened in le Var last June as the movements, the gestures and the scenography show a profound realism.
During 25 minutes, a violent flood has come down on Place des Jacobins.
A real acrobatic exploit for these 4 dancers when everything is a matter of balance. With a roof of house and a lamppost as unique set, every stage of the disaster is incarnated ; From the panic due to the waters rise, to the attempts of mutual rescues, until a probably inevitable end - as a tribute to the victims (?).
Cascade draws the progress of a fight to keep the head outside the water and the feet on the ground.
« We like creating very physical, acrobatic dances, which allow us to tell a story » reminds Louise Richard, director of the company, during an interview for Ouest France.
With Cascade, MotionHouse managed to combine a serious subject with a high-level artistic performance leaving the public of the festival both impressed and bewildered by the tidal wave which took under their eyes.
