Grabbing, Pushing, Thrusting / Nuit blanche - Paris

  • Pont Alexandre III (map)

Two dancers reproduce as precisely as possible a Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu fight and a choreographic sequence created using the same movement principles. The bodies form various configurations by grabbing one another; they can evoke vegetal configurations, animals or the sensual intertwining of bodies. Contrary to a real fight, both dancers collaborate to perform the movement sequence. They constrain each other and it is this mutual constraint that generates the movement. The erotic dimension of a fight and the violence of sexual actions meet in this collaborative opposition.

Choreography: Noé Soulier
Interpretation: Nans Pierson and Noé Soulier
