Classe Sick is a play made for six performers : two female dancers and four male dancers, representing a group of middle school students on a school trip in a castle. Model student, prodigy, distracted, discreet and dreamy, teacher on the nerves; all the characters have their particularity, personality, and their very own dance style. The variety of styles displayed represents the diversity of the dancers on the stage. Therefore, classical dance, breakdance, locking, and the new circus are all combined.
Through a very demonstrative form of choreography, the piece paints a caricature of the French monarchy and ridicules the visit of these students to this castle in a humorous way. The public is invited to immerse themselves in the protagonist’s vision of French culture and history. The play raises the question of their identification with this past which visibly seems remote to them.
A massive chandelier influenced by Versailles’ Hall of Mirrors is used on stage as an accessory for the performers, who use a variety of techniques to make this stage design spectacular.
