L’amour des commencements is a musical theatre piece written by Maguelone Vidal for eight actors and actresses from La Bulle Bleue, a company of physically and mentally challenged professional actors. The piece is based on a resolutely hybrid style of writing which is musical, choreographed, textual and scenographic. The audience is invited to participate in a polysensuaus experience which translates our poetical singularities, imaginary childhood memories and corporal movement into motion, pulsating into the present. The attention of the audience, who are seated in the nuclear heart of the performance, is attracted to the text and by the physical proximity of the actors as they engage in a jubilant pagan ceremony, ranging from trance to opera passing by theatricality and performance, reality or a shared dream.
From 2019 to 2021, Maguelone Vidal and her company, Intensités, is an associated artist with La Bulle Bleue.
