In 2012, "Echappées Belles" was developed around the question of what it means to age. This led to two new forms: "Issues de secours", a daytime itinerant show and "Point de fuite", which played at night.
In 2016, "Immortels" was produced around the question of what it means to be young today. This dance-theatre project exploring this period between childhood and adulthood in a poetical and tactful way, involving young performers in the creative process, has also led to two new forms with "Le Nid" and "L'envol". With an age gap of around 50 years, two generations bare all and risk revealing themselves in the street!
The company intends to continue this journey of discovery, bringing together generations to hear what they have to say, and to continue exploring and listening to what “young people” and “old people” from other countries have to say, in other languages. During Travellings 2016 the company presented "Across Generations" , an adaptation of the piece "Immortals", especially created for Travellings with a group of 8 young people from Marseille during workshops with stage director Patrick Dordoigne.
