For his first creation for all audiences, the virtuosic Jonathan Capdevielle has seized upon Hector Malot’s Sans famille, a vibrant classic of children’s literature, and adapted it into two episodes: a show and an audio fiction to listen to back home. A master in the art of merging choreography, sound and music creation and acting, Capdevielle creates a fantastic universe that makes hearts skip a beat. Here, the actors transform themselves into living dolls whose masks and costumes confer an unreal atmosphere on this initiatory journey. Bodies move as if possessed, exalted by a powerful and immersive sound creation that takes children and adults through a maze of wonder.
Trained at the École Supérieure Nationale des Arts de la Marionnette, Jonathan Capdevielle has performed in several productions (by Lotfi Achour, Yves-Noël Genod…) and has collaborated with Gisèle Vienne since his debut. He has been performing in almost all his plays. He began to develop his own work in 2009, which mixes autofiction, narrative and intimate stories, relying on imitation and references from popular culture such as Jerk and Adishatz, both presented at Arsenic. His last two plays are adaptations: in 2017, he created A nous deux maintenant, adapted from the novel Un Crime by Georges Bernanos, and in 2019 Rémi, based on Hector Malot’s Sans famille.
