Toi, La Maladie - Camden Fringe 2019
The Cockpit - The Cockpit
Toi, La Maladie paints the intimate, voyeuristic portrait of a love that courses through the body like an illness. It wages war with the psyche before it steals furtively away, leaving you aching and shivering in its wake. It permeates every vein and muscle, dissolving almost into a fever dream onstage. Ren Datura and Yohan Durand have fused their individual performance styles - neo-burlesque and diabolo - with contemporary dance and poetry to tell the story of their tumultuous transatlantic history together. Brutal and virulent, tender and ravenous - Toi, La Maladie is a haunting symbiosis of human geometry and human emotion. Doors - 6:30pm, Show - 7pm. No latecomers admitted. Show is 30 mins, followed by a 15 min Q&A with Ren and Yohan.
