The company

Because in a time of isolation, loneliness, invisible barriers, existential questions, reflections on the essential, we have looked inside us. So as not to get lost, to understand what is left, what matters. Because in the hour of tenacious and obstinate silence, our mouths stamp their feet, our instruments move, our hearts leap. So as not to get lost, to understand those who remain, what drives us.

The company Just Before Oblivion is born following the confinement of March 2020 in Ozenay, a small village of Saône-et-Loire in Burgundy. It was for us to pool our means of expression, our languages ​​and continue more than ever to share, express ourselves, surprise and confuse.

Dans notre recherche artistique nous aimons mêler les mots, le son, la musique, le corps, le clown, le cirque, avec la particularité d’apporter une douce confusion des sens grâce à la magie nouvelle. Ce croisement artistique se nourrit de rencontres et de collaborations avec des artistes et des techniciens qui enrichissent le travail de la compagnie en y déposant leurs regards et leurs habiletés.

We like to bring the show beyond the agreed and expected places, invest the public space, leave the memory of an emotion there, and give it back its magic. We also like to come back to the theater to better rediscover it, to enjoy the special listening that is created there. We like to mix the writings, to seek mixed techniques and to find the precision, the requirement, the laughter and the pleasure.

Et ce que nous aimons plus que tout c’est jouer.
Inviter chaque spectateur à s’abandonner un instant et accepter de perdre bien des repères.
Play and be moved.
Together.

And what we love more than anything is playing.
Invite each viewer to surrender for a moment and accept to lose many bearings.
Play and be moved.
