Actor, puppeteer, ventriloquist, dancer and singer, Jonathan Capdevielle loves adding to his roles and altering identities. Resolutely autobiographical, his very singular work for theatre rummages through the narrowness of the family unit. Its aim is to shatter parochialism and all forms of local idiosyncrasies. For his latest creation he has taken an external source, a story written by Georges Bernanos in 1935, and led it towards the questions that inhabit his own artistic world. In The Crime, a detective novel that rejects the realism of the classic police story, the enquiry is centred on the enigmatic figure of a provincial parish priest, a character as shady as he is charismatic. By manipulating sounds and voices live, Jonathan Capdevielle directly influences the sound environment of the play and takes it towards the fantastic. A polyphony of voices performed by five actors who juggle the roles between them, À nous deux maintenant plays with a polychrome typology of identities and interpretations of the text. As the narration progresses, lost in a detective novel without an end, the characters no long appear like real figures. Completely fantasised, they open up a range of possibilities...
