Act tells a story of creation. In this solo work, Mathieu finds inspiration in connecting images from various myths about the origins of the world to his own creative journey.
Act is the newest work from the award-winning choreographer Mathieu Geffré. In this solo piece performed by Mathieu himself, he explores the essence of his choreographic research. In Act, Mathieu Geffré wants to share his process with the audience. Based on a strong physical engagement and directly inspired by the context in which one the work will be performed, Act will be choreographed in a way that Mathieu can choose how the work unfolds as it is being performed.
'Geffré’s choreographic excellencies set high standards'

The creation of Act has received support from Arts Council England, Dance City, Greenwich Dance and The Place. Act is also supported by 35 private crowdfunders.
In their waking state they assume to know,
Part of the self that is forced below,
Under the covers, beneath the skin,
The collective unconscious the shadow within.
