The concept and choreography: Rachid Ouramdane
Composer: Jean-Baptiste Julien
Addressing “sfumato,” an arts technique which is identified as an “imaging technique with no lines or configurations, as if hazy,” Rachid Ouramdane has created a whole series of diffused choreographic paintings onto which the body borders are as if diluted. The dancers, existing in the space of non-stop mists and rains, present a metaphorical vision of actual environmental problems: disappearance of entire areas; forced runaway to new uninhabited lands and related with this thoughts, feelings and memoirs of witnesses. The cult French choreographer, in co-authorship with dramatist Sonya Chiambretto and composer Jean-Baptiste Julien, offers a new look and the poetics of a witness.
Sonya Chiambretto’s dance Short Taiga is included in the performance.
