Nelly Pulicani | Maxime Taffanel | Collectif Colette

Before becoming an actor , Maxime Taffanel was a pool aficionado. This former expert of the butterfly stroke sprint exalts a life set by rhythm of effort, quest of the perfect movement and battle against time. Let’s go for it !

Alone on a bare stage, the former high-level swimmer become an actor takes us in Larie’s everyday life – a young man dreaming himself as a champion like Michael Phelps, but who’s currently eaten alive by anxiety. What is a performance ? What does self-fulfillment mean ? Dressed in a bathing suit, swimming cap and googles, Maxime Taffanel tells an ever-ending battle against time, the pain of fright stage, competition, etc… Mostly, he exalts his relationship to water, expressing gracefully the fluidity of sliding in water. Movements are repeated tilll they look like krumping dance and a burlesque poetic choreography never against the flow.
