The Kingdom of Shades

Created by Noé Soulier (FR)
“The thread of tradition is broken, and we have to read its authors as though no one had ever read them before.”(Hannah Arendt ‘Between Past and Future’)
This piece is an attempt to propose a different reading of the well known and established movements of ballet. If you only play with the order of the steps, it always produces an acceptable ballet phrase. I try to disrupt that organisation through different strategies: selection and isolation of the preparation steps, remixing of existing sequences, and montage of different phrases.

Folksonomy (folk + taxonomy) is the practice and method of collaboratively creating and managing tags to annotate and categorize content. It's a user-generated taxonomy.
We are using three different types of movement: reenactment of improvisation, material based on a score written in Laban notation and steps from ballet pantomime. The two first ones are experimentations on movement as syntax, the last one concentrate on the semantic aspect of gestures.
The same score has been given to each performer who worked on it independently. The score is precise but also very open, it never defines all the parameters of the movement. Therefore the different versions always have something in common even though they are singulars.
The steps of ballet pantomime possess an ambiguity as signs: some of them imitate clearly what they signify, while others are arbitrary, and most of them stand somewhere in between. Several levels of convention and representation are intertwined in single sentences.

We want to dedicate our performance to Mohamed Toukabri, Oumaima Manai and their families, whose houses and souls were hit by a storm in Tunis in the end of September.

The Models

Created by: Daniel Linehan (US), Noé Soulier (FR) and Elisa Yvelin (FR)
We are modeling movements. Models could be defined as explicative representations. They represent the original movement, but they never aim at authenticity. On the contrary, they prioritize certain aspects of the movement, yet most of the time they achieve the function of the source material. They are signs, they mean something and at the same time they perform what they mean.
