There are three amusing choreographic creations presented by the French troupe Petite Fabrique and inspired by the well-known fables of La Fontaine, who used animals to tell the tales of humans. Le Loup et l’agneau di Béatrice Massin, using the music of Marin Marais and Baroque dance, shows us the similarity among the different historical epochs. Next is Le Héron by Satchie Noro and Alain Rigout, a ballet in two acts set to the music of Ghedalia Tazartes, who offers un elegant Valse des poissons, while the ending is Contre ceux qui ont le goût difficile by Lia Rodrigues, a less well-known fable that grasps the author’s anxieties, thought and choices, and which the playwright sets in the France described by La Fontaine and in present-day Brazil, accompanied by the music of the Chants de lutte of the group Les Motivés.Who are the strong ones and who are the weak ones in these two worlds? Won’t winning or losing be merely a question of perspective?
