Le Carré de Sainte-Maxime # Saison 2017/18

Vertikal

Called by some 'new Béjart', Mourad Merzouki uses hip-hop gestures as others use the classic or jazz. After being one of the first to wear it on the biggest stages, he commuted this very physical dance in a choreography of expression. For this new creation, the choreographer wishes to change perspective and seize an unexpected space: that of verticality. Offer us a creation on the wire and literally stunning!
We couldn't celebrate ten years of the square without inviting the iconic choreographer whose generous, powerful and unifying parts have often galvanized audiences of this territory. Mourad Merzouki returns with a creation through which it pushes once again the physical limits and explores bold dance land of the air and the verticality. This new 'surface' brought dance choreographer to wonder about the notion of stage space - how appropriate the air by dance? -but also on the relationship between individuals on a dance stage: the wires that hold the body become the physical metaphor of the relationship between them. Through a mechanism proposed by the company Retouramont and Benjamin Lebreton, Martin confronts a dozen dancers in this new environment where the movement has to learn to play with gravity. The dancers explore new lines of flight where everything seems possible, ascension as the fall, the quest for lightness as the gravity game. Enfranchising wires that hold the body, they are redrawing the palette of game of hip hop and are more ethereal. With grace and poetry, they soon give the illusion to fly. In this stunning and poetic flight, the choreographer perpetuates his approach of decompartmentalization of genres, hustling all the bookmarks.
