Two artists discovered through Danse élargie, two quartets evoking the loss of self. The first through a dance of possession. The second through the terrifying possibility of the end of the world.
Lignes de conduite Lignes de conduite by Maud Blandel, a finalist at Danse élargie 2016, draws its power from the tarantella, a dance closely related to ancient ceremonies of ritual trance in southern Italy. A highly physical dance, both ecstatic and exultant, a pre-Christian ritual, the tarantella can lead to a primal scream. Here, four women explore the transformation of this cathartic ritual into folklore and investigate the place of the sacred in such a transformation. Fin et Suite, the new piece by Simon Tanguy (2nd Prize at Danse élargie 2010) also deals with going beyond yourself. Four performers are overcome by a dizzying, constant logorrhea provoked by the feeling that the end of the world is imminent. With nothing to lose as they simultaneously face the end of times and infinity, they undertake a breathtaking last dance.
