Alliance Française de Trivandrum, Cochin annexe in association with Chavara cultural centre is organising a mime show by La Cie Akarakù: Wanted on 4 February, 6.30pm @ Chavara cultural centre.
Wanted is a mime play based on Lecoq technique with one actress, playing all the characters, and one mouth sound-effect maker. The artists Lorraine Brochet and Barnabé Gautier were inspired by the Western universe, because of its violence and aesthetic, its absurdity and its rhythm. So they worked on the embodiment of movie camera movement, change of camera frame, and everything else they could transpose from one media to another.
They have also used silent movie style to soften the violence of some scenes, and cartoon style to pull away from realism. The show leans on the capacity of the performers to tune on each other: the illusion is based on a very precise synchronicity between movement and sound. Sound effects give a depth and texture to the movement so that the empty space becomes, consecutively, a Saloon, a bank, a desert, and invisible becomes visible. Entry is free.
