The Company

To be incomplete is to be on a quest, searching for one's soul mates.  It is an attempt to complement one another, to fuse into symbiosis. It is perpetually rummaging the world over for answers. To be incomplete necessitates an active construction of the self... One is ceaselessly incomplete and yet never wants to remain so.  One must refuse this condition, strive for fulfillment, knowledge, action, affirmation and humbly take responsibility. One must never forget that without others, one is worth very little. 

To be incomplete is to be a heart in search of another.

From the shore

From the shore is a solo without words created for specifically for babies. It is performed by an actor and set in a scenographic space integrating video landscape and soundscape. Grounded in creative research using poetic imagery, this contemplative form explores the figure of the fisherman and its various mythologies through the lens of the fisherman’s wife: an ordinary heroine of a demanding everyday life. It is she who remains in the harbour, maintains the household, the one who lives and survives, dreaming of the great homecoming, yet cherishing her solitude. In an intimate space designed for little ones, coastal landscapes unfold, threaded with the woman’s inner landscape, a day-to-day life filled with hope. With this piece, Les Incomplètes offer reflections on waiting, solitude and the pain of being away from those we love, capturing the intimate emotional states that all humans experience, from birth onwards.

Dawn Lullabies

Dawn Lullabiesis an artistic concept that creates a cozy gathering space incorporating electro-acoustic sounds for infants and toddlers and their grown-up companions. In this soft and welcoming space, filled with mismatched rocking chairs, children enter an ethereal soundscape that evolves around them, allowing them to explore a musical journey inspired by traditional lullabies.

Drawing from Gascon, Alsacian and Innu lullabies, this series of audio performances offers families the chance to come together and, to the soft rhythm of a rocking chair, to share in a tender and contemplative moment from a child’s point of view. Dawn Lullabies provides us with a gentle moment of art to delight us before we are drawn back to the hustle and bustle of everyday life.

Coproduction with City of Pessac and La Passerelle (France).
