Mr. FOLLOWER

Mr. Follower, a man reserved and uninteresting, becomes overnight star of the small screen. Happened in the emptiness of the world of show business, here it is metamorphosed by its popularity: change of costume, habits and climb dopée of false pretenses.
The enthusiasm and humor of the five dancers of the Compagnie Public Opinion associated with the trio of live musicians Papership transcend the routine of Mr Follower, a lambda spectator living in fusional harmony with his small screen. After Bob'Art and Post Anima, they are now entering a stunning cathodic universe at the Truman Show.

POST ANIMA

POST ANIMA is a reflection on the theme of the Man and the machine.
  Coupled in a game of domination, control, manipulation, machination and reciprocity, locked up in a perpetual gyratory movement, these two protagonists (Man and Machine) appear in turn as victims and executioners of their own alienation , Fueling the competition and interdependence that binds and separates them, confronting each other on the altar of efficiency and productivity.

BOB'ART

The company OPINION PUBLIC presents its 2013 creation, "Bobart", born of a desire to offer the public a satire of the drifts of contemporary art. With this in mind, the performing arts will be the most targeted and especially their penchant for an excessive psychologism which eventually disconnects the spectacle of its art and its public. A genuine "cerebral masturbation" organized and subsidized by a system of social networks with little wisdom about the expectations of artists and the public. It is in a game between dance and theatrical arts and under the accent of derision that the company OPINION PUBLIC proposes a quality spectacle to laugh at those who are even more funny ...

OBSOLESCENCE

The first part of Obsolescence looks at the degrading effects of obsolescence on the human being as a physical and mortal entity. Through a play on tortured and spasmodic bodies and movements and a visual analogy on the image of the mannequin and the puppet, allegorical forms of the ignorant and manipulated human are exposed, subjected to the cliché as well as Popularization and vanity of his actions. The latter finds himself at his expense, staged as products from a factory, personified in matrix, glacial and mechanical ...
 
 The second part of the piece proposes a staging of the different proponents of obsolescence. There will be multiple interactions between man and object, man desiring the object, the object taking human form. Hence the interplay of technical, video and light effects referring to technology and its predominant influence on the modern individual. The image of the bulb, a veritable mascot of obsolescence as well as that of light, a symbol of a blind progressivism will eventually become crushing for human destiny like monsters of fatality ...

APART/HEID

"Apartheid", an eloquent title, a term that sounds in our ears of well-thinking Westerners as synonymous with an austere policy, advocating exclusion, segregation and ghettoization. Indeed, it represents a foil to our idea of ​​democracy. Yet these negative aspects abound in our so-called policed ​​societies. Racism, intolerance, community withdrawal, all of which are also de-socializing effects due to our exaggerated individualism, which has led us to ignore our neighbors today. From ignorance leading to fear and fear to hatred, the West is seen to melt in ordinary violence, causing the degradation of the social fabric by the domination of hateful clichés, communitarianism and private interests. It is to denounce these perverse effects too little emphasized that the company Opinion Public signs this new creation, dealing with neighborhood narratives, a deeper problem, the separatism of classes, applied slyly to our societies imprinted with An egalitarianism and a dying pacifism ...

OPINION PUBLIC

Imagine a world in the form of a closed session in which education, information, power and speech would be held by one and the same omnipotent entity. This world is that of a single thought, a single voice, a single opinion and its subjects, guinea pigs and victims. But it is also that of a scene and an audience, that of a proposed vision. Such is the dreamy and disturbing universe of "Public Opinion", a spontaneous creation born from an unreal perspective but which seems to knock on our doorstep ...

The company Opinion Public is composed of five dancers. While drawing inspiration from their personal and professional experience in the Béjart Ballet Lausanne, the company is driven by a common desire: to create a distinctive choreographic style.
