Diagonale Ascendante

New Production 2019
Duet – Bungee and trajectory play (indoor or outdoor, by day, 30 min)
Premiere 17th of May 2019 – Festival Temps Danse #3 Paris 13ème

The two dancers move into a chase game that goes from the wall to the void, from the elastic to the rope. In this three-dimensional space, the trajectories fork at any time thanks to the use of different apparatus. We follow the energetic and surprising play of the two dancers, mischievous, accomplices or rivals. Their races cross, dodge, separate then, bring back a moment the bodies in contact.

“The apparatus is composed of solid and soft materials. The dancers’ movements and bodies draw regular, asymmetric, round and vertical lines. The work in the void will be made thanks to an object composed of a rigid bar and a flexible jump pole, ropes and elastics. Like an extension of the body, this apparatus stretches, contracts and articulates at the same time as the dancers play.”
