Director & Choreographer
The Shape of a Day
Les Nuages R&D is a new creation, the first stage was developed in Lisbon in January 2023 with the collaboration of dance artists Connor Scott.
We all carry the weight of the blue sky above us, and all these clouds, all these dreams.
The Shape of a Day is a contemporary dance duet, directed by Bea C. Bidault, created and performed in collaboration with Theo Arran.
'Nobody can question that things fall again. A man gets sick and suddenly on a Wednesday relapses. A pencil on the table falls twice in a row. [...] Theoretically, nothing or no one would think of falling again, but the same is bound to, mainly because they fall back without conscience, falling again like never before.' Julio Cortázar
The duet explores how a couple takes care of one another, what losing the ability to relate with our surroundings means, and how animism relates to the concepts of purpose, identity and being alive.
