Aphorismes Géométriques

Kelemenis & cie

How to give oneself only a short time to witness, with a bang, the birth of a reactive work. To create fleeting encounters, to extract individual, essential or raw substances from them and present them as elements of dialogue between the individual and his socially determined function. 4 dancers-women pour 6 pieces, created during 5 days : a desire for speed, guides the conception of Geometric Aphorisms.

The essential relationship between dance and music unfolds: the reaction to musical works is the starting point, the support and beacon for the rehearsal stages. 5 days are dedicated to developing each proposition, after which their unveiling at the studio will clarify the elements focused upon. Each of the 4 dancer-bodies is swept away towards a deadline expressed in terms of hours, stripped bare, alone or together.
