" A PERFORMANCE IS A LONG QUIET RIVER "
PRODUCTION SRING 2021
IN CO-PRODUCTION WITH TANZHAUS NRW DUSSELDORF
"To act means to modify figure of the world". Jean Paul Sartre, L'être et le Néan, 1943
Because the idea of action could not be existing without something we defined as "not an action", I am interested in A performance is a long quiet river to highlighting action inside 4 concepts of what could be called "non-action" : waiting, stagnation, inactivity and paralysis.
A performance is a long quiet river would be a performance combining dance, text and visual arts. I will work with two dancers, two visual artists and one music composer on inter-dependance between bodies, sounds and materials to question the idea of "being active" or "being passive" in relationship to "modify the figure of the world"...

Do we think or do we move faster?
How to feed a constant movement creation?
How as professional dancer, no repeat movements patterns?
How much our dance education and background influences our improvisation?
How would be the encounter of two different dance style and cultures in movement?
