Compagnie Michèle Noiret, BE, Website
Mon, 16.01.2023, 11:00h - HAU1
55 min.

With l’œil, l’oreille et le lieu, a new dance/cinema project, Michèle Noiret wishes to share his wonder and fascination for the world of insects and the widespread sorrow and anger felt at its gradual disappearance. The choreography both navigates this anger and celebrates the fantastic universe of insects, whose complexity of rhythms and positions and unpredictable movements seem so strange to us. Such varied phenomena as the cocoon, metamorphosis, mating and the capture of prey permeate the movements, presentation and stage design. In the style of a science fiction movie, the choregraphy addresses these ecological and societal questions. Without being preachy, but with the aim to captivate, surprise, puzzle, question, and win over the audience.
