Let us start by regulating ones account with the rabbit of the title.
One will seek vainly here the fluffy expensive silhouette with our imaginary childish and our informed papillae. It is a performance “without animals” that Compagnie 7273 invites us to. Nothing anthropomorphic in this vision ; this “Bugs Bunny” belongs rather to a presupposition, a pretext to the formulation of a point of view on dance. Let us imagine this rabbit as a rhetoric process which defines a stake : the laboratory rabbit is the support of an experiment which aims at producing a result.
It guarantees the possibility of the lucky find, it is the obliged passage.
And it thus achieves its ambitious destiny by paying the full price. Because, in a hilarious scene, as addition to a true declaration of intent, Nicolas Cantillon affirms this need for a “price to pay” so that a little beauty occurs ; accidents, breakdowns, failures, short-circuits become the lexicon of grace. Understand this word without grandiloquence, nor insipidity but like a tension adapting to remain irresolute: “To be modern, is to know what is not possible any more “(Roland Barthes).
