Le Petit Bain

Le Petit Bain

Johanny Bert / Théâtre de Romette


There’s a man taking a bath.
No, he’s a dancer who is sculpting clouds.
No, it’s a cloud cradling a dancer in its arms.
No, it’s a man creating landscapes in order to disappear into them.
No, it’s something else entirely.

Imagined for very young audiences and the adults accompanying them, Le Petit Bain is a creation based on material which is at once concrete, recognizable for the child – but which can also become an abstraction, a playing field for the imagination: bubble bath.
Working with this fascinating material is a dancer who sculpts the foam to create fragile masses, landscapes and a number of ephemeral characters.
