PUCIE (Cie Sapharide)
The title Pucie is a mix between “pussy”, a vulgar term for vagina, and Lucy, the name given to the first female Australopithecine skeleton discovered. We consider Lucy the first woman. Lucy who, according to legend, drowned to death in a river while pregnant, abandoned by a group of males who had made it across. This story guided us as we explore the topic of the origin of humankind.
The performance is suitable for ages 14 and up.

The company Sapharide was created in February 2013 out of the duo Infiniment Double created by Mélanie Favre. In this work, she investigates through choreography topics dear to her heart such as “body”, “gender” or simply “being”. The intensity of her work is embedded in a choreographic world truly her own. In 2015, Melanie Favre presented her second performance, the solo Corps, which questions androgyny through the female body. The company Sapharide has also cooperated with other artists such as the collectif KikiBronx for the performance High and Tight at Le 192 and the young puppeteer Emeline Gouverne for the exhibition Traces during the company’s residency at the Massenet Theater in April 2015. In 2016, Julie Botet joined the Sapharide company.
