This show presents us with five performers who will explore the idea of the “worse” in front of their audience. Through anecdotal stories, demonstrations and flights of fancy, the worse proves to be a powerful philosophical acid that exposes our relation to the world, shining a playful but unforgiving light from which even the performers cannot hide. While being a primarily scenic project, Logic of the Worse coordinates text, movement, music and stage set, searching for a universe capable of not only seducing spectators, but of also making them the privileged accomplices of a truly original world view.
Étienne Lepage creates shattered worlds that are both witty and dark. His most recent project, Logic of the worse, renews his collaborative work with choreographer Frédérick Gravel.
