Find the way home ... to this house that so many times we would have liked to leave, or that perhaps we left too quickly and unwittingly ... Something in us recognizes the way back. An intuition to be trusted.
A loving couple visit their future home. During this visit an accident will take them away from each other. This break in the time that separates them is the gateway to a narrative that closely weaves fiction and reality, desires and obsessions. Like a utopian place that can accommodate everything, the house will then bring them together, transformed by what they have just experienced.
As if mirroring the movements of this couple, another couple - this time 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 meetings and associations seems even greater.
After exploring the poetic image of a bridge in the show “Ponts Suspendus”, Gustavo Giacosa and his Cie SIC.12 appropriate another image rich in symbolism: the house. Organically mixing different disciplines (music, dance, theater) this work invites the spectators to abandon the demands of Reason to try an experience where getting lost is the only possibility of finding oneself.
