In this audacious first solo work, lumi­nous dancer Anne Plamondon dares to take on the subject of mental illness. In collabo­ration with actress, author, and director Marie Brassard, she superimposes realities to offer an almost panoramic view of this gripping theme. She becomes, alternately, a lost man – a dislocated personality who manifests co-existing and successive ab­normal states, verbal delirium, and incohe­rent behaviour – , and a woman, witness to the shipwreck, who sees the shimmering mirage of the line that separates insanity from “normality”. The dancer also incar­nates the afflicted man’s fleeting memo­ry of the person he was before tilting into madness. Touching in her fragility, she ex­plores the grey zones that inhabit us and cause us suffering, the incomprehension of others, and the body, too small to contain li­mitless thought. In Les mêmes yeux que toi, she draws us, body and soul, into a poetic dance-theatre performance, inviting us to contemplate these troubling mental strug­gles.
