Tiresias. The soothsayer of the Greek tragedy. Called to speak about the plague that tormented Thebes. Made blind and seer by divine decision, after living in the body of a man and a woman and after affirming the superiority of the female pleasure. More than ever today it seemed necessary to evoke Tiresias, if only for the need to look deeply into the darkness of our age or to use fiction to peer into its abysses.

The scene. Seven chapters or seven choreographic divinations in which the figure of Tiresias circulates and is articulated through his presence, between the irony of an imminent catastrophe and the sadness of a restart. Here Tiresias is man and woman, human and serpent, mineral and ethereal. He appears and mingles with his divinations.
My Only Friend, Do you Believe in Life After Love?

 

The Futur Immoral company was born from the meeting between the artists and dancers Paola Stella Minni (Italy) and Konstantinos Rizos (Greece) in Montpellier in 2015 during the master in choreography Exerce (ICI-CCN). Together they created the EP “Matériaux Publics” (2016) and the shows and performances Taken For Granted, co-directed with Ondina Quadri (2017), PA.KO doble (2019), Silver (2020), presented at the Les Hivernales festival in Avignon, Radio Fuoco, choreoradiophonic project with Laura Kirshenbaum (2020), RRRROTTEN (2021/2022), Kill Tiresias (2022).
Their works are characterized by an accumulation of languages and a reflection on the formats in which the choreographic question is each time reinterpreted in an undisciplined and hybrid way.
Minni and Rizos are artists associated of the CDCN Le Pacifique in Grenoble (2020/2022) and the Bulle Bleue theatre in Montpellier (2022/2025). Their work is supported by Montpellier Danse, Théâtre de la Vignette, CDCN La Place de la danse.
