Synopsis

Dimitri Chamblas and Kim Gordon's latest takemehome creation is a visual and auditory experience that takes shape in a nighttime setting, in the light of street lamps or starry skies, amid fireflies or car headlights, footsteps or furtive movements of nocturnal animals.

To the rhythm of the electric guitars and amplifiers of Kim Gordon, bassist, guitarist and vocalist of the alternative-rock band Sonic Youth - "one of the boldest women in rock" calls her The New Yorker - the dancers move as silhouettes emerge and disappear, elusive but familiar, intertwined and interdependent. At the crossroads of power and resignation, they are the forgotten people of the great metropolises, prisoners or the elderly, unproductive, neglected, undecided ghosts.

"The show was born to Los Angeles," says choreographer Dimitri Chamblas, "from the long at I spent driving at night back from a maximum security prison located outside Hollywood, where I teach. As in the world's major metropolises, foot traffic has been eliminated and with it the misery and underworld that accompanied it. to times, at night, this barely lit world of asphalt lets ghosts and silhouettes emerge. I imagined a whole universe of human forms based on these absences."

Chamblas chooses to put from aside virtuosity and rely on the performers, from from different continents, each with a distinctive artistic background, as well as to a knowledge of the stage that allows them to interpret all kinds of gestures, from silence to excess.

The dancers move in the half-light, exchange gestures and take shape. Over their heads looms the luminous zeppelin designed from Yves Godin, before disappearing, temporarily swallowed by darkness. Beauty emerges from blackness; it is necessary to cross these shades for the show to become an ode to the forgotten shadows of the great metropolises.
