dance - Season 14/15
In previous solo performances, choreographer Ula Sickle and sound artist Yann Leguay examined the interaction between movement, voice, sound and light. In Prelude, they work with Norwegian vocalist Stine Janvin Motland. With her use of extended vocal technique, Motland explores the limits of the human voice, entering into dialogue with the amplified elements present on stage. Has the body become an extension of technology?
Choreographer Andros Zins-Browne and dancer Chrysa Parkinson reinterpret Swan Lake (Le Lac des Cygnes). The presence of the original narrative is no more than implicit. The end result is a holographic installation of a physical body that gradually disappears into its virtual double.
Following a series of duets and a quartet, the dancer and theatre-maker Pieter Ampe is going solo. During a stay in New York he immersed himself in a world of transformations in which emancipation, and sexual and emotional energy go hand in hand. Although he may well seduce the audience with grand gestures, a gentle swaying of the hips also suggests regained sensuality.
Jan Decorte is creating his second piece of dance theatre. A meeting of four people, an extraordinary love story. No rigid grammar of dance, but the anarchy of movement, the faltering beauty of failure.
In 55, his first creation, the choreographer and dancer Radouan Mriziga constantly plays with the perspective and expectations of the spectator. Mriziga studied at PARTS and is artist in residence at the Moussem ‘nomadic’ arts centre.
