Short Film: ROCK COUNTRY, 7min., Spain, Dance

 

441ee8dca7 posterThe aesthetics and spectacular nature of vertical dance, set in a quarry, a place destroyed by humankind. The beauty of dance substitutes the crudeness of the rock. Attention is focused upon the figure of a woman, demanding a leading role –as is happening in today’s society–. Women that dance, women that climb, women that even lift rocks, as if they were heaving high a country. Harria is the rock, Herria the country.

Short Film: ANIMAL, 7min., France, Dance

5bd6655977 poster

This short film is an adaption of the performance Animale (choreography by Lisie Philip, music by Laurent Tamagno). It was produced for an event in the MAMAC (the Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art of Nice) called “la Nuit des Musées” in 2017. I perceived the show as a celebration of the vitality of the body which is hunted and cornered but also resistant and pugnacious. The ardour and youthness of the tense muscles reminded me of creepers around a tree. I admired the transcendental beauty of the protean animality, oscillating between a quadruped, a reptile and a bird. I wanted to confront, as a last hunt, this body to young to die to the cold beauty of the cutting room of the old slaughterhouse of Nice.
