Why experience this event?

With this large-format piece, acclaimed at the Avignon Festival, the gifted Flemish dancer Jan Martens signs an uppercut work that will leave an indelible mark on the spectator's memory... Seventeen performers, aged 15 to 68, seek a gestural response to the steamroller of oppression. Drawing inspiration from the protest marches that have been multiplying in recent years, from Black Lives Matter to the Gilets jaunes, the artist takes a political stand and allows herself to be crossed by these contemporary revolts to elaborate a galvanizing crowd choreography. The diversity of bodies becomes a weapon and translates an infinite number of collective and individual acts of resistance. The community provides a dazzling response to the reactionary undertones. Carried by Henryk Górecki's hypnotic score, this abundant ballet amazes as much as it upsets.
