Petit Plateau - Friche belle de Mai
In a quadri-frontal configuration, five bodies are caught in an uninterrupted circular flow, linked by a single physical force: rotation. The movements of the dancers compose a continuous intertwining system generated by their own circular trajectories, a whirlwind that forms the centre. Movement, light, sound, all matter merges into a vibratory field. A number of possible forms arise and then disappear in this hypnotic fluctuation of infinite energy.
In the affective domain, the Copernican revolution has not taken place: we are still at the center of our world. Liam Warren's piece proves that it is possible in a future time, happy, present, to live as the satellite of the other, of others, and that this is good, fair and true!
