“If you’re ever in trouble / I’ll be there on the double”, sings Marvin Gaye into the emptiness. An intimate but eerie duet between a living and a lifeless body, between Georges Labbat and his doppelganger cast in resin: both are “receptacles of a one-voice dialogue” (Labbat). In absolute darkness, the rigid puppet and the P.A.R.T.S.-educated dancer-choreographer, who has taken the stage for performance greats like Anne Imhof and Gisèle Vienne, negotiate conflicting feelings of alienation and desire. Careful at first, this “lonely waltz” develops a childlike exuberance, continually changing roles and shifting dynamics, and forcing us to bring our own longings and trepidations to the table.
