THE BATHERS

UNEXPECTED AT EVENTS

COVID-19 and The Bathers


Sadly, COVID 19 appeared as spoilsport for the expected performances of Les Impromptues in Loire-Atlantique... Bye-bye "Le Défi des Ports de Pêche of Pornic", "La Journée Régionale des Soins Palliatifs des Pays-de-Loire", "Les Estivales de Comberge" and "Les Plumes de Retz" in Saint-Michel-Chef-Chef !... Hopefully, Les Impromptues prepare some surprises for "Les Paniers Artistiques" of "Ouvrir l'Horizon".

THE CONCEPT

The bathers come from the beginning of the 20th century and invite themselves into a cultural and artistic event. Les Impromptues are bathers from the 1920s, dressed in bathing suits from the epoc. In 100 years the world has changed completely. Les Impromptues therefore pass from bewilderment to jubiliation; from fear to tenderness; from seriousness to fantasy. Are they taken aback, terrified, amused by everything they discover? A smile, a shrug, a few small steps outlined, and it is the optimism of dance prevails. It is a pleasure to meet them on each occasion.
