Je suis Giselle


The performance ”Je suis Giselle” proposes to remake the romantic ballet ”Giselle” (act I) in a different manner by distributing a man in the main role (alongside two other interpreters) and to translate the subject in contemporary manner through the prism of common themes that are still valid in our society today. Another unique aspect is that the solo has been performed simultaneously in 3 different locations.

The inner process of the individual growing up is brought to the fore by exploring specific subjects such as: the overwhelming influence of parents on children, differences in social class, the impact of public opinion on the individual, psychological fragility and lack of experience/naivety.

Through  ”Je suis Giselle”- ”I am Giselle” we affirm that the course of the main character can be everyone’s at any time of existence and that it is important that the road to balance and rediscovery through all the internal turmoil specific to human nature is the way to balance and retrieval. "Je suis Giselle" is a metaphor of the self-transformation, of the diversity that surrounds us and of the acceptance of the personal processes that each of us goes through throughout its existence.
We are therefore inviting reflection for both young and mature audiences.
