Finding the way home ... to this house that we would have liked to leave so many times, or that we perhaps left too quickly and unwittingly ... Something in us recognizes the way back. An intuition to trust in.
A loving couple visits their future home. During this visit an accident will take them away from each other. This rupture in time that separates them is the gateway to a narrative that closely weaves together fiction and reality, desire and obsession. Like a utopian place that can accommodate everything, the house will then bring them together, transformed by what they have just experienced.
As though mirroring the movements of this couple, another couple - this time a couple of children - will be separated and will experience several adventures to finally find their way back.
"La Maison" invites us to enter the dreamlike universe of Gustavo Giacosa,
where the freedom of encounter and of union seems even greater.
After having explored the poetic image of a bridge in the show “Ponts Suspendus”, Gustavo Giacosa and his organisation SIC.12 adopt another image rich in symbolism: the house. Organically mixing different disciplines (music, dance and theater), this work invites the spectator to abandon the demands of Reason to undergo an experience where getting lost is the only possibility of finding oneself.
