The Maguy Marin Company, in co-production with Maison des Arts et de la Culture de Créteil, France

With over 500 performances in 25 years of international success, "MAY B" is an extremely rare phenomenon for a contemporary dance show that has been performed for almost 40 years, in over 40 countries worldwide. The creation of the famous choreographer Maguy Marin, beyond being a bestseller for contemporary dance, is a historical landmark, a tragic saga of a frightening humanity.

"May B" is a fragment of humanity: an archaic choir of seemingly clay-modeled characters, timeless witnesses to endless wandering." - confessed Maguy Marin, adding:" At Maurice Béjart, bodies were revered. Everything was youth, virtuosity, sparkle. I was thinking about what it would be like with the other bodies, awkward, petrified, the clumsy bodies that barely manage to stand on their feet ... ”.

Samuel Beckett's work inspired Maguy Marin to create these fractured lives that celebrate a unique form of an excruciating burlesque.
