Pinch yourself: Aurélia Thierrée perfects the art of the steal on stage.
The Guardian


ENGLISH︎︎︎

Bells and Spells follows Aurelia Thierrée’s peculiar journey as an incurable kleptomaniac who is at the mercy of the objects that she steals. A coat hanger starts to walk, chairs and a table slide and slip away, while a wall opens up to reveal a pair of dancers, and a dress suddenly takes on a life of its own.Using ethereal imagery and unpredictable props, this enchanting piece of physical theatre blends the wonderful with the strange. Neither logic, reason nor seriousness has a voice as Aurelia Thierrée and dancer Jaime Martinez guide you through a story which combines surreal humour and a sense of magic.

ITALIANO︎︎︎

Aurélia Thierrée, nei panni di una inguaribile cleptomane, si ritrova improvvisamente in balia degli oggetti di cui cerca di impadronirsi. Meccanismi improbabili, strani incontri, carillon impazziti e mille altre sorprese in un continuo e imprevedibile gioco teatrale.
