SOLILOQUY – Charles Brecard

Vietnam – Canada

A soliloquy is a monologue addressed to oneself, the expression of one’s thoughts out loud. In this solo, the performer meanders through his own ruminations, challenging himself to face his emotions, doubts and worries. While on his introspective journey, he shares the stage with a skeleton symbolizing the last vestiges of his humanity. A waltz between him and the carcass ensues, evoking a stream of confessions, accusations and discourse.
The pessimistic, almost fatalistic tone of the piece is juxtaposed with joy and sincerity, aiming to stimulate imagination and question its propensity for denial. May inertia give way to action

Charles Brecard

Born and raised in New Caledonia from the Vietnamese diaspora, Charles Brecard arrived in Tio’tia:ke / Montreal in 2013 before graduating from EDCM. As a performer he collaborated with various local artists. His limitless curiosity drives him to develop his practice named FLUIDIFY, influenced by his cultural and ethnic background, his experience in street, folk or contemporary dances, and his profession as a massage therapist. It allows him to teach in different contexts (Festivals, Professional training, …) to amateurs and professionals. His choreographic works, imbued with strong physicality and theatrical poetry, have been renowned and presented in a few countries.
