LES VAGUES 2024

LES VAGUES, a contemporary dance piece that explores the motif of the wave to speak of healing energy and collective strength in the face of the strange glare of chaos. 

 

In the piece LES VAGUES, the choreographers Pettit*Rochet create a space of solitude and unity, brutality and protection, control and chaos. In a present and future world filled with uncertainty and uprooting, balance is fluctuating, difficult to maintain, and adaptation is necessary for survival. LES VAGUES offers an explosive and implosive experience. We have chosen the motif of the wave to embody internal movements charged with both anger and kindness. Anger of a new generation flooded with violent images and propelled towards an uncertain future. We have delved into the brutality of our relationships and our environment, exploring the limits of our bodies to find healing energy and collective strength. And, to free ourselves, to reclaim the spaces of oneself and others, and to try to regain meaning and love, we have explored the space in between, the space of kindness.

CIRCOLANO 2024

In CIRCOLANDO, Nunzio Impellizzeri explores the deeper meaning of the word 'circolando', going beyond the usual definitions. This concept, derived from the Italian verb 'circolare', becomes a mirror that reflects the constant energy of modern life. 

The dancing of the performers becomes a vibrant choreography, a rhythmic beat that urges us to understand the complexity of contemporary life. The stage becomes a space for bold exploration, a journey through the changes and challenges of our time. To quote Heraclitus: 'In a world where everything is changing, there's nothing you can do permanently except to change yourself' - a thought that resonates in a context that invites us to dance to the accelerated rhythm of this ongoing cultural evolution.

CIRCOLANDO is an invitation to merge with this perpetual current, to actively participate in shaping the unique plot of our lives within an ever-changing social dynamic.

A contemporary dance performance for young audiences, and for all ages. A fun and creative dance show, perfect for the whole family. From 6 years old, children and adults will have the opportunity to discover, outdoors or indoors, HISTOIRES DE VERBES, a contemporary dance performance highlighting our senses through action verbs. Through a fun choreography, spectators will be able to see the verbs LOOK, FEEL, HEAR, TOUCH and TASTE in full dance! How can we bring action verbs to life through our bodies? How can we personify our senses to better understand them, develop them and give them our full attention? The answer lies in this fun and whimsical dance show. Dance workshops for all audiences can also be organized in connection with this performance, allowing everyone to extend this sensory and artistic experience. These workshops may include dance exercises exploring action verbs, sensory games and creative activities promoting personal expression.

LIFT

A choreographic exploration that depicts strength and vulnerability.

In LIFT and in close collaboration with the dancers, the PETTIT*ROCHET choreographers work on the Requiem de Fauré to visit the act of carrying. A piece based on the idea of strength and vulnerability, on how these two seemingly contradictory states can coexist. By lifting a person, we can explore the idea of support, both in a physical and metaphorical sense. The dancers move from lift to lift, using their bodies to support and connect with each other. LIFT is a demanding piece, but also intimate and tender.

Choreography : Pettit*Rochet

Dancers: Antonin Mélon, Giulia Quacqueri, Eloïse Ginestar, Domenico Doronzo, Guillaume Cursio.

EN PETIT COMITÉ

 

Created using the methodology of choreographer Ioannis Mandafounis and in close collaboration with the dancers, EN PETIT COMITÉ talks to us about the functions of the physical body, its use in the stage space and the cohabitation with others. To the physical experiences of the performers is added the emotional world of each, thus activating the notion of feeling in the dancers as well as in the public. How to reduce the distance between the performer and the audience? How to knock down this famous 4th theatrical wall? How to create a choreography with a human dimensions? The public become spectators of the piece, but also of the creative process that unfolds to them, and why not, thanks to them?

Dancers: Antonin Mélon, Giulia Quacqueri, Eloïse Ginestar, Domenico Doronzo, Guillaume Cursio.

QUATUOR FOR A TASK #2

For another playful and creative approach to dance!

 

The concept of tasks was invented by Anna Halprin. Her practice and thought of movement had a considerable influence on the development of contemporary dance. The tasks are simple instructions given to the dancers, allowing them to build in real time a choreographic itinerary, a dance freed from any narration, character, expressiveness or artifice that could disguise the movement. QUATUOR FOR A TASK #2 offers the public a moment of escape, surprise and the unexpected through the bodies in the architecture of the urban landscape. A concept giving pride of place to creativity.

Tasks  :  Pettit*Rochet

Dancers: Antonin Mélon, Giulia Quacqueri, Eloïse Ginestar, Domenico Doronzo, Guillaume Cursio.
