The character of Bambi obsesses Jeroen Verbruggen for 3 years. This dancer of Ballets Monte Carlo knows periods with an animal in the whole of his mind. Few years ago, goldfishes already swam in his head, he finally gets free.
This time again, it’s Jean Christophe Maillot who exorcized the stag in his head.
By request of the choreographer director of the Ballet Monte Carlo, Jeroen Verbruggen collaborated with On aura tout vu.
Kill Bambi is a nervous and agitated choreography as the fawn, always careful because of the « danger ». Disney shows it very well in his movie. This danger kills Bambi’s mother and forces him to grow up quickly, a gunshot which propels Bambi in the adult world.
In the Jeroen Verbruggen play, danger takes different form, and everytime it hit, the red curtain storm on the stage.
Through this work, Jeroen Verbruggen wonders what does grow up mean. This strange introduction endless.
