Olivier Dubois “Tragédie, new edit”

A choreography about the mobility of unconsciousness, of nature guiding us: about natural instinct. Leading us from the darkness of night to a possible sun. A choreography about the turmoil of our cells and how they generate the anger needed to fight against our demise. This means dancing against the grip of time that afflicts/constrains us, it means being pagan and sorcerer, tarantella and tarantula, prophet and martyr. The bewitched body-as an irreverence to fatality. A possession to dispossess death of its rights. Therefore, we must all sail blindly toward the sun and become sextants so that our primary migrations can eventually turn around. Form: a black lacquered dance post, a ballroom! Writing: a constantly renewed geometric score, a space in perpetual motion. Dance: one movement, one arm bending incessantly. Music: live music is composed by François Caffenne drawing from the actual sounds produced by each planet in the solar system and the sun and traces a musical epic.
