The brilliant young French director Raphaëlle Boitel, whose company l’Oublié(e) captivated theatergoers at their Williams Center debut in 2019, returns 8 p.m. Thurs., April 6, with Ombres Portées (Shadows Cast). Conveyed by performers with extraordinary physical prowess and the high-flying elements of circus craft, Boitel’s stories unfold in a cinematic dreamscape of haunting imagery. “Truly ravishing,” hailed Ben Brantley of The New York Times.
“This company is remarkable. They bend, they dance, they swing, they soar impossibly through the air” (Irish Independent).
