“La Nuit, La Traversée followed by Sur le fil are a journey through this minimalist, sensual and spiritual dance, passing from solo, to duet and then to trio, exploring three times the same haunting letting go that thwarts existential solitude. The starting point is solitude, in fact, in La Nuit, as the primary and essential presence for “remaining porous to one’s environment and being able to welcome the world into oneself”. La Traversée opens up this quest for the imperceptible to four performers who are in love with each other, sketching out a new nouba carried by a memory of the rhythms and steps of ancient tradition. Sur le fil at last, suspended between the visible and the invisible, between transcendence and immanence, a lively, free and unsubmissive trio bringing performers and spectators to a place where “one accepts not to know any more”, carried by a fascinating soundtrack that evokes adolescence, dreams and Sufi prayer.
