Don’t miss this unique opportunity to see a spectacular night of theater and exploration! La Compagnie Tilawcis, a theatre group from the Île de la Réunion will perform Frénésies at Koubek Center.
Frénésies is a joyful ode to existence that vacillates between the dazzling and the carefree. It follows two travelers who learn how to embrace the journey and make each day count.
First creation of the company, Frénésies is an initiatory theatrical performance that takes us from New Orleans to Japan, from San Francisco to Réunion…
At the heart of the story, we follow the journeys of Thomas and Bilal, two characters in a story written and performed by Florient Jousse, scatted and jazzed up by multi-instrumentalist Jah Pinpin. Two men-orchestras at the service of a liberating party conceived as a frenetic urgency to get back on the road to devour life, try to reach an understanding of the reverse side of things, learn fully from hazardous encounters and think differently about the world.
La Compagnie Tilawcis describes their performances as show-making without borders, places where various arts forms hybridize, unleash, and weave together again to create something mystical and spectacular. Beyond their shows, La Compagnie Tilawcis members are committed to inspiring the ambition of young theatre students in Réunion through their performances in many schools and conservatories.
