Creation project 2021
In a highly delineated graphical space, cordoned, walled and caped off by threads, stretched out to create vanishing lines, perspectives and negatives spaces, four dancers together sketch an abstract, organic, collective performance. Moved by a primitive instinct, like an animal pack, they come into this playground for the sheer pleasure of creating shapes. Their individual movements and sounds evolve as their common work emerges. A back and forth dialogue between individual and group, interior and exterior, between the positive and negative spaces, the mediums (bodies) and surfaces (spaces) made up of flat plains and multi-dimensional perspectives.
The quartet thus weighs the notion of attraction as a magnetic force, against that of distraction, in a kind of merry-go-round of compelling sensations. Here, there is no structured or reasoned approach to the body and the choreography, but simply a deep dive into the creation of shapes. Forging links out of necessity or interest. Taking part in a theatrical experience for what is unique and unknowable about it. Creating your own reality, different from another's. Detaching from thought. Forgetting all tangible explanations to concentrate only on sensation. Trusting your intuition as Bergson defined it in The Creative Mind, as that "sympathy through which one is moved into the inner being of an object to grasp what is unique and ineffable".
