Evolution

Evoluam spiritual, fizic, istoric, politic, economic… Oare?

Evolution: où le corps rencontre la matière, où la matière est source de vie, où la vie appelle le néant, où surgit du néant, la vie. Neuf danseuses fusionnent dans un élan de créativité, prennent conscience de la fragilité de la vie, de leurs survies. La matière, les éléments, la musique, donnent un prétexte aux corps de jeunes danseuses d’exprimer un sentiment de détresse face à un avenir incertain.

Pina Bausch – Kontakthof [2000]

Pina Bausch, in 2009, a schimbat o scena cu o alta.

The performers, all aged between 65 and 75, enact mating rituals and sexual frenzy apparently more suited to those less than half their ages. When Pina Bausch revived her seminal 1978 dance piece in 2000 she opted to use a cast of seniors, previously untrained in stage dancing, with stunning, if sometimes uncomfortable results.

I’m not interested in how people move; I’m interested in what makes them move.

Vava Stefanescu – Quartet for a microphone

Quartet for a microphone is a choreographic and sound installation that sets a discourse about confinement, the lack of distance, the relation with the other and about the idea of being hostages of our own existence. Being a real time composition the only reference and support is set on the visible/audible situation that is constant during 60 minutes.  Every idea – sort of starting-point keywords – comes into conjunction with the movement of sound, with the glance of the audience and this is how other new and unexpected ideas are born. For Vava Stefanescu, the accidental of the presence conditioned by this specific context, the attention for perception rituals, are constant preoccupations but also fascinations about this “come and go” between fiction and reality:

Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui – Sutra [2008]

Una dintre cele mai interesante performance-uri de dans contemporan pe care le-am vazut in ultima perioada. Coregraful flamand de origine marocana Sidi Larbi Cherkoaui, impreuna cu sculptorul englez Antony Gormley si monahii shaolin de la templul Henan, China, au realizat ceea ce puteti urmari mai jos: Sutra.

By visiting the Shaolin Temple, and working with the Shaolin Monks over several months, Sidi Larbi follows a lifelong interest of exploring the philosophy and faith behind the Shaolin tradition, its relationship with KungFu, and its position within a contemporary context.

Muzica, superba, a fost compusa de Szymon Brzoska.
