Implying reciprocal interaction, Soliloquy for two, surges from the convergent fascination of a dancer and an illustrator for the human body. It tells the story of a body/ persona as subject and object of experience, care and practice. A story recounted by illustrated, multiforms personifications, dissipating into metaphor and symbol, matching disturbing the body on stage.  A reflection on the body, its internal and external perception, its plurality, its representations, the visible layers that compose it.

This work recounts one of the possible versions of the story of the God Money. Sent to Earth to facilitate exchanges among human beings, Money takes pleasure in playing with their weaknesses and, taking control of their will, he will become increasingly more powerful...

Using an ironic and symbolic language, this story leads us into an imaginary but familiar universe. The piece makes use of the allegorical power of myth to celebrate humanity, without illusions, without shame, recognizing that human been can be as brilliant and sensitive as mean and vulgar.

The Aim of our Inquest is:

to see how much cultural and social patterning influences the dancers' movements, individual

presence and the quality of their interaction.

to see how much influence the application of physics and anatomical principles will have on the

cultural and social patterning of the dancers

to see what remains of these attributes or qualities after an exploratory choreographic process

focussing on the study and application of: kinetic energy, inertia, torque, momentum vectors and

gravitational forces.

Performance for two dancers and one camera

Concept: Sara Parisi, Francesca Pedullà, Antoine Renouard

Dance: Sara Parisi, Francesca Pedullà

Camera: Antoine Renouard

With the support of: Association Sonagnon (Cotonou), Spazio Saravà (Genova), Centre Choréographique Multicorps (Cotonou).


 

The performance is an uncommon hybrid between “cinema live” and performance, in which the choreography is structured around functional rather than aesthetic physical attitudes and gestures, revealing a body shaped by and reflecting on its environmental, cultural and social conditioning.

Live filmed sequences fragment reality, highlight the uselessness of a single point of view, augment and complete the expressiveness of the performing bodies that become landscape in the service of the camera.
