SINHA DANSE | D'OS ET D'ÉCORCE
Information on the activity
January 22, 2020 to January 25, 2020
A thrilling ensemble piece, D’os et d’écorce (Out of Bark and Bone) is an invitation to discover an enticing encounter of diverse sounds and influences. Six dancers and two musicians present a flamboyant piece rooted in breathing, voice and rhythm in a very physical performance. Incorporating certain gestures of traditional Indian dance and accentuating essential vital forces, this contemporary dance, in its intensity and energy, goes beyond divisions, affiliations or cultural identities. Driven by didgeridoo and live percussion and augmented by the original compositions of Katia Makdissi-Warren, the enveloping, hypnotic soundscape makes the inner rhythms of the bodies onstage resonate. In this exploration of origins and heritage, Roger Sinha once again establishes proof that the sum of our differences is an incomparable treasure.
