BIBI HA BIBI – premiere at Atalante in Gothenburg October 12, 2017
The artists and choreographers Aloun Marchal (France) and Henrique Furtado (Portugal) present a hyperventilizing performance that combines a wide range of masculinities – from throat songs to ritual dance and wrestling.
In the middle of the scene, face to face and in sleek knitwear Aloun Marchal and Henrique Furtado challenge each other with a broth that starts deep inside.
Bibi Ha Bibi explores a wide range of sounds and movements that style collide with each other: from martial arts to legitimate childish play, from fragile discouragement to goodnight songs and from relaxed breathing to bestial cry. Progressive mechanisms push the combatants deeper into the show, the movements become incoherent and the throats open more and more. The voices and faces, the laugh and the broth are gradually collapsed, mixed, and rival each other. With the listening, moods and the exchange of movements as a basis, Bibi Ha Bibi passes “pas de deux” from controlled violence to sensuality.
Aloun Marchal and Henrique Furtado have both worked in different constellations in France, Portugal and Sweden. Bibi Ha Bibi is their first performance together.
Bibi Ha Bibi will also be played in Marseille and Lisbon in October 2017.
