Scène 55 # Saison 2019/20

Gravité | Angelin Preljocaj

Creation 2018
Room for 13 dancers

For years, the notions of weight, space, speed and mass have intuitively crossed Angelin Preljocaj's choreographic research. The day-to-day work with the dancers leads him to experiment with forms whose fundamental components revolve around this question, both abstract and terribly concrete. True to a principle of alternation between pure research pieces and more narrative ballets, this problem of Gravity opens up new perspectives. The choreographer develops eight paintings, eight universes in which thirteen magnificent performers live with gusto, who rise and dance before reaching the ground again, as if caught up by gravity. Naked set design, only dressed with lighting. Angelin Preljocaj focuses on pure movement. His musical choices are bold: Bach, Daft Punk, or the percussion of Iannis Xenakis. The whole thing is punctuated by a revisit of Ravel's Bolero, a breathtaking apotheosis of dancers moving in unison.

Any audience.
