Les Mariés, même (Bride and Groom, Same)

Shows - installations

In a park, five new­ly­wed pairs wander around wear­ing tuxedos and white dresses and pos­ing for an invis­ible pho­to­graph­er. A piece which sub­verts the codes of wed­ding pho­to­graphy in a sur­pris­ing performance. 

It is a quite usu­al sight on a beau­ti­ful Spring day – some­thing each of us has seen or even been part of before: a newly mar­ried couple wanders around a park pos­ing for a pho­to­graph­er whose lens is meant to cap­ture either can­did shots of the wan­der­ing pair or more staged ones. How­ever, see­ing five couples pose their way around the park for an absent pho­to­graph­er is unusu­al and cap­tures the audience’s atten­tion. This is the concept behind Yvan Cléd­at and Coco Petitpierre’s humor­ous piece Les Mar­iés, même which sub­verts the famil­i­ar codes of wed­ding pho­to­graphy and will be per­formed in Fal­aise for the Danse de tous les Sens fest­iv­al. It is as if the new­ly­weds on the wed­ding cake were com­ing to life in the park; in per­fect uni­son, the pairs go through the ritu­al of pos­ing for “nat­ur­al” shots and stay in their poses for an invis­ible pho­to­graph­er, under the watch­ful (and amused) eye of the spec­tat­ors wan­der­ing around. A quirky and poet­ic per­form­ance which is part of Clédat & Petitpierre’s work on codes and archetypes.
