Ce corps qui parle – Singing in the brain

Show-Conference :
What do we see people who think ?

Staging by Yves Marc


Creation 2012

In this conference-like show, Yves Marc dismantles and demonstrates the usual gestures of everyday life. Axis of gaze, inclinations of the head, gestures of the hand, postures, steps. All these simple actions, which we pay no attention to, escape the consciousness of those who realize them.
And yet these “imperceptive” gestures tell us how much the body
Yves Marc, relying on simple data from neurosciences or communication techniques (NLP, Synergology), takes an amused though scientific look on our humanity. Thanks to his experience as a gesture actor and director at the Théâtre du Mouvement, he sings a few tasty portraits of human comedy.

From 10 years
Duration: 1:15

In the press

“Yves MARC demonstrates, with both scientific certainty and a storyteller’s wit, some of the 240.000 face expressions, along with our smallest, everyday gestures and the whole array of our familiar postures which betray our inner truth. The body is an unrepentant chatterbox which happens to contradict, most of the time, what our words say. The outcome is literally fascinating, joyful and reveals a rather strange human comedy.”

“Yves MARC creates an extraordinary stage solo show about movement theatre at L’Espace Libre, both fascinating and full of humour. Quite instructive too, his performance is a superb display of theatricality at its best. The man IS the show at its fullest.”
Louise Bourbonnais – Le Journal de Montréal (Québec) / October 19th, 2013

“Let us not beat about the bush: all young actors would dream to work with such a brilliant professor. We cannot help fervently hoping for a world which would provide us with such lively classes ! One feels like jotting notes after each sentence since Yves Marc ‘s wording is both elegant and skilful, each of his comment is relevant. He manages to bridge the gap which lies between acting and living.” Christian Saint-Pierre – Le Devoir (Québec) / October 17th, 2013

“The French artist Yves MARC provides us with a fabulous solo performance “Ce Corps qui Parle”. We have no choice but to note  that the apparent simplicity one feels at first glance is in fact backed up by an extensive knowledge, an amazing wealth of information and an incredible tenderness. Yves Marc ‘s Speaking Body moves us deeply and makes us fall over head over heels !
Olivier Dumas – Mon Théâtre (Québec) / October 15th, 2013

“Yves MARC shows he is a master. […] His magnetic, physical and gestual perfection, his unique and captivating tone of voice are the ingredients of a fun-filled, hilarious and most moving scientific lecture about the “Speaking Body”, as reflected in the title. Simply magic !”
