Pièce Sans Paroles is a collaborative work between choreographers Anne Juren and DD Dorvillier, theater director Annie Dorsen, composer Sebastien Roux, visual artist Roland Rauschmeier and lighting designer Thomas Dunn. Pièce Sans Paroles proposes a narrative theatrical script by the legendary American playwrighter Tennesse Williams as the score for a choreography. With Dorvillier and Juren serving as actresses, and Dorsen directing, the play retains its drama, psychological motivations, characters, stage directions, and scenic elements. The crucial mission is language, the words the characters speak. Without dialogue, the play takes on new life as form and movement, bringing a fresh perspective on choreography and the production of meaning that rises out of the damp ashes of the existential realism of 20th century American drama.
