Shows on tour

Welcome to this space gathering informations about Image Aiguë' shows on tour or planned.


We created last november La Morale du Ventre which is part of the research about relations between Power and Hunger started by the Company with its previous creation The Ogres or Power makes joyful and tireless (2010).


For this creation, the Company lead a set of public research laboratories ("Chantiers"), in different theaters accross the city of Lyon.


We are now preparing Les Quatre Saisons - Qui veut l'œuf doit supporter la poule, a variation of La Morale du Ventre with the music of Vivaldi, a cooperation between Image Aiguë and baroque ensemble Les Nouveaux Caractères.


There are many occasions to meet : for research workshops of the European Theater Ensemble or theater lessons which we lead in many countries Europe-wide. Don't hesitate to contact me for more informations.

Short fables without moral, but stomach's, to leaf through like a naive and violent picture book.


Autor, director : Christiane Véricel


"Each uses his own assets and tricks, the challenge is the dividing line between winners and losers, dominant or oppressed. Yet, whatever the severity of the topics, the pitfall of pathos remains absent. The playful and unexpected tone takes place in a false frivolity engraved in a pointer as beautiful as it is powerful. For Christiane Véricel, "the stage is a catalyst. The plastic universe allows to transpose reality into imagination", which knows no border. Beyond the visual quality of each piece of Image Aiguë, the whole artistic approach reflects, by its outcome, the profound necessity of its commitment."

Lise Ternat, Mouvement n°68


"With Christiane Véricel, globalization is embodied on stage. From hyper globalization that dilutes everything, she uses her focal length for we fell, in the happy eyes of children, the seriousness of the subject: in 2012, hunger is still a plague. Trade liberalization has done nothing. So she denounces by stating her global theatrical art: music borders the body in dance steps, the silence hems their shadows, movements twirl fed by grace, while the flow of the stage direction founds spaces of freedom designed to perfect fit."
