BESIDE, the 3rd opus of the B+B+B trilogy, relies entirely on live radio in each city where the piece plays. The performers say what they hear on the radio in the moment. Parallel to this, their movement score is made entirely of gestures from public affairs television programs. BESIDE questions the abundance of information that surrounds us daily and the construction of truth, fake news and the role the body can play in the credibility of what is said in the media. How are speeches constructed today, and how is the body their support or their vehicle ? Does the overabundance of information prevent us from understanding each other ?
