SOCIÉTÉ PITOUCH COMPANY
ABOUT THE COMPANY
Société Pitouch Company was created under the initiative of Evelyn Z. Biecher, actress, playwright and theatre director.
Pitouch is liberation, madness, love, adaptation, rhythm, evolution and transgression.
One of its most important bases in scenic creation is the interaction in the space reserved for the public and the immersion and adaptation of their works in unconventional spaces, listening to the architecture of the place. Questioning with it, the role of the public in the scene, integrating it as a central point and transforming its participation in a Greek choir.
The necessity to explore new artistic forms leads the Company towards a process of searching for new proposals and challenges in the performing arts, finding its own language: “La touch pitouch”. Their creations have caused a great impact on the critics and the audience. The technique used is based on real time performance, giving absolute freedom to their shows and implementing various forms such as performance, live arts, choreography and the media, in case of needed.
With the performance “Frag#2” (2006), presented at the Theatre Festival in Valencia, Spain, it won its first prize for innovation and quality of performance and staging, which marked a before and an after of the company, as it further stimulated even more the research of an interdisciplinary creation based on experimentation, which included visual and fine art language, different scenic formats, and other disciplines and living knowledge. With the performance “Frag#3” (2013), present ed at the TEA Festival in Toledo, Spain, it receives two prizes: first prize for the best staging of the festival and first prize for the innovative character of the show highlighting its physical staging, the interaction with the space and the audience and for its current theme and social commitment.
Evelyn Z. B. / Pitouch Company, with more than 8 shows, have traveled to Chile, Argentina, Uruguay, Spain, Mexico, Colombia and Brazil participating in various international festivals and offered workshops and conferences following their own guidelines.
