Inspired by the puppet "Crowned Poet" by the artist Paul Klee, the new solo work "Masque-et-toi" negotiates the complexity and contradictions of power. The figure danced by Léa Thomen follows a path of gradual transformation, dropping masks and questioning the way power is handled. In the confusion and mixing of fantasy and reality, "Masque-et-toi" develops as a choreography of gestures, postures, words and live chalk drawing on stage.

"Masque-et-toi" is the first Swiss production of the company HorizonVertical in co-production with TanzPlan Ost Festival 2020 (CH), Phoenix Theater Steckborn (CH), Théâtre - Maison D'Elsa | Cie du Jarnisy (FR) and is supported by the Cultural Foundation of the Canton of Thurgau, Stanley Thomas Johnson Foundation, Ernst Göhner Foundation, Swiss Interpreters' Foundation, Regional Association of Thurgau Raiffeisenbanken and Kulturpool Untersee - Rhein.
