Practical infos


Lines divide the stage. The body, like a continuous current of gestures and movements, collides with the caustic geometry that tightly encircles it or responds to it, in a play of echoes and extensions. The subtle variations in sound, light and choreography succeed in transforming the space, redefining it as illusion until it releases the body from its hold. Embracing the floor, Cindy Van Acker interprets a virtuoso piece horizontally.

In a simple grammar, alternating extremely slow movements and rapid almost sliding sequences, Tamara Bacci explores a constant movement, the object of tiny and infinite variations. A free fall choreographed on the floor, on which the body executes or clearly is subject to a cycle of contractions and releases, of control and abandon.
