To create A breaking down and a multiplication of tissue, Jean-Frédéric Chevallier invited a writer, Matthieu Mével. It was about not to write a text to be represented on stage but to produce a stage work with the idea of breaking down the text and its signification. The question was simple: what happens then? There is the genuine desire to present only loved materials: Matthieu Mével's poem, Jean-Frédéric Chevallier's videos, Sandra Goméz's dancing body, Roberto Gonzalez's voice, Rogelio Sosa's sound textures. In this performing act, words become poetry, images look to cinema and recitation is like a singing. A breaking down and a multiplication of tissue moves in between theatre, dance, video and music. It leads the audience to a journey where the laws of narration disappear in front of the joys of sensation. In fact, there is nothing to understand. What is needed is mostly to let oneself go on in the middle of words flows, Indian women faces, a Colombian dancer’s grace, a Mexican singer’s sensibility, electronic music sounds. It is an invitation to enjoy the surprising singularities producing by all these unexpected encounters.
This stage work had been conceived and built thanks to the active participation of the Teatro UNAM technical staff: Erick Velazco, Caballo, Tintán, Tobi, Perro, Bartolo, El jarocho, Chemita, Gilberto Mata Jiménez, Kakitas 2, Kakas, Niño, Virus, Tripón, Yolanda la explosiva, Loco, Coni, Piedra, Loquillo, La paisana.
