Theâtre National De Nice
Conceived as a cinematographic work, this blend of circus, theater, and dance plunges audiences into the realm of unspoken questions within the family, of destinies that change, of the construction of oneself. A series of different incarnations create a visual narrative picture enriched by the use of light and shadow. What is our dark side? How can we discern truth from falsehood and reach the light? An artistic journey full of intrigue that disrupts both the fears and the hopes buried deep in all of us...

– La Presse de la Manche
The Cie L'Oublié(e) was created in 2012 and Raphaëlle Boitel serves as its director and choreographer. Rooted in the circus arts, the company branches out into theater, dance, visual arts, and film to create a physical, choreographic, and acrobatic language based on the connection between the performers and mental and intuitive processes.
