L’ombre du ciel

 

In this creation, the choreographer acknowledges the body’s ability to express its dance of doubt and paradoxical certainty without a need for words.

 

The choreography opens up on an Indian pink rectangle. A streak of dirt divides the stage. A very thin woman walks in glissaded steps. Her arms open up in a gesture of giving. In the distance, the music hesitates. A few red petals lie on the floor, the last image of beauty before violence strikes. The stage trembles and cracks. Bodies roll on the stage… There is no need for comments in the Sky’s shadow, nor literary or philosophical punctuations… In this creation, the choreographer acknowledges the body’s ability to express its dance of doubt and paradoxical certainty without a need for words.<br>For his own part, with an oriental intuition, Anish Kapoor has understood that a few shadows, a line, a hanging thread were enough to accompany the oscillating choreographer…
