Maguy Marin

Is May B a dance performance or a pantomime?

May B makes joyous use of the full spectrum of possibilities offered by dance and pantomime, opposite yet complementary forces united to recreate the dramatic universe of Samuel Beckett.
A grotesque, unnerving universe peopled by strange characters with round eyes, pointy noses and mocking mouths. Their heavy footsteps throw up clouds of rice flour, a reference to the clay dust from which man emerges, for as long as his pitiful existence is ordained. Decades on from its premiere, May B has lost none of its malleable expressionism, corrosive humour and desperate poetry. "
