Primo Tempo

Musical and danced poem
Family audience from 4 years old
Created in 2012
Like nomads migrating to the rhythm of the seasons, three “hunter-gatherers of sounds” go meet new landscapes, imaginary worlds. Inspired by traditional peoples, they take their habitat with them, build their shelter for a night, and then leave for new lands. These playful travelers express themselves by singing and dancing, inventing vocal identities with ancestral sounds. Rhythm, space in transformation, movement… Three performers use voice, body and percussion to propose a musical path evoking different states of nature, time going by, or how nature transforms itself according to the passing of time.
Islands of nature composed of bamboo structures, calabashes, fabrics, evoke a desert nature in a refined aesthetic.
Inspired by the traditional nomadic cultures of Mongolia, Amazonia or Australia, musical instruments with strange shapes – mouth organs from Laos, aboriginal horns, bamboo phones, diverted objects – become scenic objects evoking plants or insects from another world, while offering multiple possibilities of musical and physical games.
“A little jewel. A very subtle proposal… An extraordinary magic.”
