2005 CREATION – NOW TOURING

Volibri

AERIAL POEM FOR 2 OR 3 DANCERS
 
 
« This aerial dance explores the weightlessness of the human body, the way we try to escape the confines and ties of our world, creating a state of intermediary existence. The virtual world seems to liberate our bodies and our habitual, spatiotemporal constraints. »
Volibri is a game of weightlessness. Each partner’s body is a spatial reference point for the other partner. It’s a dialogue between bodies, a sensual, physical piece of poetry.

The wall, the vertical plane. The dancers use the wall as if it were the ground. For them it’s another performance space, a dance floor. The bungee cord they are attached to allows them to explore a unique kind of choreography. They can go beyond the physical limits of the vertical plane. Their movement is fluid and gentle, incomparably voluminous.
Some parts of the choreography are set, other parts are open to improvisation. Each version of Suspend’s varies, depending on each particular wall : brick, stone, glass, with windows or without, with columns or without, modern surfaces, old surfaces, cliffs or a forest ; a range of vertical planes whose diverse textures and features allow the dancers to perpetually reinvent their dance.
