Petits Silences Gênés plays for the first time at the Théâtre du petit Gymnase, from May 10 to June 29, 2024, every Friday and Saturday at 7:30pm.

This play is directed by Yanis Azaiez. The staging highlights the complexity of human relationships and the fragile bonds between friends, all wrapped up in a dramatic comedy.

Petits Silences Gênés tells the story of eight friends who reunite after years of separation. The intention behind the reunion is to comfort one of their number after a recent breakup. The protagonists of this evening are Rachi Afsahi, Grégory Dutoit, Yohann Emonot, Lolita Foussat, Tigrane Garabédian, Tom Perret, and Marie Rioux, joined by Nina Simon alternating with Jane Mazue.

The authors, Tigrane Garabédian and Frédéric Gonzales, have emphasized the unspoken and the silences throughout the play. This in camera setting, brilliantly highlighted by Johan Guion and Sébastien Lux, pushes the characters to reveal the dark corners of their personalities. These revelations lead to uncomfortable silences, literally expressing the play's title.

Set design by Djamel Aissaoui plays a central role in this theatrical experience. It creates an emotionally charged atmosphere that accentuates the dramatic thread of the story.

What sets Petits Silences Gênés apart is its ability to finely express a whole range of feelings through subtle gestures, weighty silences, tense exchanges and piquant humor.

Like all artistic concoctions, this play is a skilful fusion of various ingredients. The actors bring their distinctive talents to the table, while the writers refine the plot. All these elements work together to produce a play that will never cease to fascinate audiences.

The wonderful truth is that Petits Silences Gênés is not just a show, but a meditation on friendship, its joys, its complications and its imperceptible fragility. Sometimes, it's easier to remain silent than to tear the veil covering betrayals, regrets and unspoken desires.

Petits Silences Gênés is an audacious artistic proposition about to invade the Théâtre du petit Gymnase, promising a visceral, authentic and unforgettable experience for all aficionados of theatrical spectacle.
