THE SEAT is one of the most important creations of the Théâtre du Mouvement to date. The result of a collaboration between Yves Marc and Alain Gautré, this piece was born out of research into themes of fear. After a long period of exploring the physicality of this emotion, the actors created fascinating characters. They attempt to retain their seat, a place of comfort and security, their symbolic property, in a chorus that is moving, tragic and funny. Claire Heggen here plays The Wingless Aviator, one of the most beautifully realised roles of her career.

Language: French

Established in 1975 by its present artistic directors, Claire Heggen and Yves Marc, the Theatre du Mouvement has been seen in sixty countries. Expert and entertaining, their work has been a major influence in the development of contemporary mime and visual theatre.
