The epic Vive la Vie by Cie INTERFACE has obtained la prix du public at 2014 Festival d’Avignon and achieved full-house at the same festival in 2018. This show will soon take central stage in Shanghai.

Vive la Vie is a total spectacle, an explosion of song, dance, performance, circus and music. This show recounts the transformation from a peasant society to virtual society. It shows the transformation of family life during the 20th century, with the aim of remembering that we are the result of the struggle and evolution of our ancestors and thus bringing awareness of history back to our region. The world is energy in forward motion, that can neither turn back or stop.

Since 1990, Cie INTERFACE creates its own shows which it develops by merging different type of arts. Its practice can be understood through its name. An INTERFACE is a language which is able to link two uncommon universes, not only dance, theatre and music, but also culture and economy.
