Mezzo, 15’

Belgian premiere

France

In the beginning, there is the urge against what we were, the roles we played, but also against everything that made us and what we could have been – or perhaps become (pode ser, in Portuguese)...

Leïla Ka revisits her own career as a dancer and explores the difficulty of being oneself, of assembling one’s own being and of overcoming one’s contradictions. Her movements are like a fight against oneself, against the air, the useless expansion, losses of all kinds... Clenched in on herself, she wages a furious struggle with fists, but this articulation paradoxically bodes an opening, future freedom. This freedom is tantamount to a promise for which the choreographer reveals some important principles: controlled energy, a density of presence, an art of being there.

Evening made of 3 short pieces (with Goofy - Roni Chadash & rain - Meytal Blanaru).
