In this artful and affecting hybrid of dance, slapstick, music and acrobatics, rope is an endlessly mutable medium, as fluid and surprising as life itself.
Suspended from the ceiling, coiled on the floor and stretched through the air, a gargantuan tangle of ropes becomes an impenetrable wall, a labyrinthine forest, a people-eating monster, a musical instrument, a sanctuary of a bed...
The New York Times, 2007, December 7
This newest brilliant piece, translated as "Farewell Umbrella," is more laced with the terrors of middle age. The dominant motif is Thierree's constant search for wife and child, lost and found and lost again both inside his head and outside in a mesmerizing and oft-spectacular performance dreamscape. That external world seems made up of everything from a field of wheat to a jungle to a world of predatory fish and seaweed. It owes something to Orpheus and Eurydice. It definitely owes a lot to our unconscious fears...
Despite its casual, Euro-sensual take on community, Thierree's work has a post-apocalyptic sensibility -- it's about the little guy poking his head out of the rubble and trying to make sense of a world gone recklessly awry. It is an uncompromisingly avant-garde work that commands alertness. But this is international performance of the highest order, delivered with careful attention to emotion, reality and the winds of chang.
