Physical theater with adhesive tape and live singing

Adhesive tape is a fascinating material. In SCOOOOOTCH! , three rock musicians use it in order to build a new home for themselves: They roll it out interminably, make graphic lines and mark out space before the astonished eyes of the audience. The adhesive tape will be stretched, torn, twisted, shaken, newly adhered, will transform, connect the three people to each other and to their environment.

The title is the French customary word for adhesive tape. And the tape also makes a noise that sounds like its name and which provides the rhythm for the acapella songs of the three musicians. This is a highly energetic performance for very young audiences members about safe spaces, transformations and community. In her work, the dancer and puppeteer Amélie Poirier uses bodies and objects to conduct research into interdisciplinary and contemporary forms of theater for a young audience. She has received international attention for her unusual productions that she has developed with a wide variety of artists in France and Canada.
