Removing / Jeune ballet CNSMDL / Maison de la danse - Lyon

The Jeune ballet of the Conservatoire supérieur de Lyon performing the work Removing which explores movement qualities produced by practical goals such as hitting, avoiding, throwing, or reaching. These actions constitute a vocabulary of gestures that is shared with the audience. One rarely thinks of creating a line with one’s leg or of dropping the weight of one’s arm, whereas most of our daily movements are motivated by practical goal: to reach a location, to seize an object, to avoid a piece of furniture, etc. Using a common vocabulary enhances physical empathy and kinesthetic resonance.

The bodies produce various configurations by grabbing one another; they can evoke vegetal configurations, animals or the sensual intertwining of bodies.
