PARADE aka LES DRAGONES
THE WILD BOYS
aka "FOOTBALL TEAM FROM HELL"
with Abigail Sanders, Elena Kakaliagou, Stellan Veloce, Kaj Duncan David
A MORT is a performative dedication to radical aliveness in dark times, against all odds. The choreography is situated in a Memento mori inspired installation, where the constructed hierarchy between human bodies and the more than human world dissolves: Bones next to rock, wood next to hair, armor next to skin, claws next to fingers. Hosting erratic rhythms, logic of animal behavior, objects of violence, between beautiful and bizarre, this evolving landscape shapes choreographies of destruction and construction.
An ensemble of performers and musicians explores processes of dying and killing, exposing the grotesque, yet all-too-human desire to dominate even death. While three women play hunters and warriors, horns blow. In a dying world the feminine voice emerges as powerful physical presence.
