Artistic Direction: Danièle Desnoyers
The body opens up, closes shut, is short-circuited. The voice stammers, gasps, is fragmented. Trembling and falling off balance are all part of this three-stage piece for seven high-calibre dancers. Together they seek unison as they struggle in search of identity. Long known for her very fluid style, Danièle Desnoyers has chosen a new angle here as she plays with splintered movement and makes trembling visible. Echoes of fractured humans, body and voice broken, disintegrated. Vibrating to the sounds and rough-edged music by the composer Ben Shemie, UNFOLD | 7 perspectives combines an apocalyptic atmosphere with moments of sweetness and refined sensuality. Making use of a surprising stage structure, Desnoyers tests the resistance of the body and the limits of balance. A powerful, magnetic duel between the forces at play in the dynamics of harmony, the piece captivates with its finesse and furious energy.
