ROGER

An allegory of comfort

Guillaume Marie and Igor Dobricic initiate a choreographic and performative project in which they explore the act of comforting. They will write a triptych of soli for three of their close artistic collaborators (Roger Sala Reyner, Gael Depauw and Suet Wan Tsang). With ROGER (temporary title), Guillaume Marie, Igor Dobricic and Roger Sala Reyner address the habit as a social, brotherly act (comforting the other) as well as an intimate one (comforting oneself). ROGER is an invitation: a performer invites the public to help him build a fleeting and fragile community of comforters and comforted. The system encompasses both a visual art installation and a choreographic performance; a heterotopy suitable for a ritual in which the intimate and the public can coexist and support one another freely. The artistic stake of the solo is to imagine representations of Comfort in the contemporary context. It is about reclaiming a phenomenon often left to religious institutions or conservative policies and transferring it back to artistic, philosophic and social spheres. The artists imagine an allegory and tries to answer the question that the philosopher Michael Foessel asks to our society: How can we channel the obvious effects of suffering in order to prevent them from challenging the unity of the group?
