Synopsis

A master of imbalance, suspension and gravity, Yoann Bourgeois returns to Festival dei Due Mondi after the success of Tentative approaches to to point of suspension with a spectacular and poetic new creation that investigates the fall of the human condition. Like an anachronistic vertigo, the dancers move on an imposing structure-stage built in Piazza Duomo to the notes of music by one of the most original electronic artists of our time, Hania Rani.

"This play," - Bourgeois says - "was not written on a blank page. I have never believed in blank pages. Because a page is always saturated, full of indecipherable projective knots. So this is a black page, curved like space, on which ephemeral signs slide."

from Harry Styles to Missy Elliot and Coldplay, up to to Marco Mengoni for Eurovision 2023, there are many music stars with whom he has collaborated, creating immersive and poetic effects between dance and acrobatics. His innovative and original style combining dance, circus and juggling defies the laws of physics. Concepts such as disequilibrium, flight and fall, suspension of the body, and the interaction of dancers with physical agents such as centrifugal force, and generally circular motion, are key elements in the construction of his choreographies that are always astounding. In his works, the performers interact with structures designed by the artist that form the main setting of the performances, works that seem to break down the passage of time to in favor of a feeling of eternity.

Biographies

Yoann Bourgeois

Yoann Bourgeois constantly seeks to break down the boundaries between different artistic approaches. His original method takes the form of physical paths that highlight peculiar phenomena, prompting him to to conceive an extraordinary variety of spaces and infinite variations of movement. His universe of works is the product of a permanent and enduring creative process that he summarizes as "the unattainable point of suspension." After performing with renowned choreographers, Bourgeois created his own company in 2010. From 2016 to 2022 he served as director of the CCN (Centre Chorégraphique National de Grenoble), becoming the first circus artist appointed to to direct one of France's nineteen CNNs (Centres chorégraphiques nationaux). Dedicated to a radically multidisciplinary, physical and innovative art, Bourgeois directs shows, takes part to collaborations and workshops in all parts of the world. His site-specific creations that rely on the energy and particularities of his surroundings.

Hania Rani

An award-winning Polish pianist, composer and singer, she currently divides her time between Warsaw and Berlin. Her debut album Esja (2019), a fascinating collection of solo piano pieces, was released from Gondwana Records to international acclaim, earning her four prestigious Fryderyk Awards, the Grammys of the Polish music industry. Her second album, Home, released in 2020 by Gondwana Records, earned her the "Best Composer" award from Fryderyk and was included in Rough Trade's "Albums of the Year." With her latest album, Ghosts (2023, Gondwana), Rani blends her musical experiences into one miraculous cosmic world. Rani has always embraced much broader horizons than her classical training as a pianist would suggest. She has extended her interests to other media and areas of the arts: her soundtracks include Amazon Studios' The Lost Flowers of Alice Hart (2023) and she created Room for Listening, a sound and space installation for the Warsaw Architecture Pavilion with the Zmir architecture studio, in which an hour-long composition is looped through twenty-five speakers.
