Marion Duval with Marco Berrettini (CH/IT/DE & CH/FR)
“Don’t know what I want but I know how to get it”, the Sex Pistols sang exactly 40 years ago. Actor Marion Duval and choreographer Marco Berrettini revel in the ecstatic quality of punk because it’s somehow connected with their passion for each other. As a romantic couple of greatly differing ages they generated a lot of debate among their family and friends. Then there came the time afterwards. They decided to create a piece about their failed love affair, which developed into a confession – all the associated embarrassments included. In Claptrap, literally: idle chatter, everything there is to say about their joint and their lonely feelings, dreams and disappointments is said. The result is a touching, eccentric and very human avalanche of erratic ideas, striking images and charming buffoonery.
