HÉLÈNE REMOUÉ | Sans rien forcer
To become it, you must first believe. This ironically titled solo is a modern odyssey drawing from the frenzied energy of rock concerts and the phantasmagorical depths of dreams. Wind, shadow and light draw the powerful and emphatic life-size journey of the dancer on stage. Making way for her inner idol, she is transformed before our eyes. With brute and magnetic force, her visceral, explosive and rousing movements reveal a self that is victorious, celebrated, and free. An invitation to discover oneself anew, rising to the colossal and grandiose heights of a Hercules or Jimi Hendrix.

DOMINIQUE SOPHIE | C’est rendu plus intéressant ici
“Ici” is backstage. Just like when they perform in a number that clashes with their values, four house, waacking and popping dancers move offstage, shedding their alter egos to say what they really think. Legitimate demands keep piling up, but do we always have the strength to translate our artistic and political principles into action? With directing that keeps shifting between onstage and behind the scenes, the choreographer looks at the sensitive issue of power dynamics through a humorous lens.
