Stories bring people together.
Proche comes to tell the story you'll share for the first and last time.
It's set to music using a vibraphone.
Your presence influences the story, and brings it to life.
Two close friends push a vibraphone cart. Once there, they improvise a story in the presence of the audience. Little by little, the audience becomes part of the story, sharing in the emotions of the protagonists of this ephemeral tale. Is a simple story in common enough to make us feel closer to one another? And what will become of this little piece of invented life once it's been told?
After a physically dynamic ambulatory performance and the search for the group effect (bAlllAd), Proche takes the opposite approach, searching for an imaginary world, a place for the individual in the group, and links to bring us together.
