Heart Bounces

Tichelbé

A corrugated iron sheet fence around the stage. She turns up alone. Quarreling with herself. Abrupt and harsh movements, powerful yet vulnerable. He appears in the background, initially with little movement.

A corrugated iron sheet fence around the stage. She turns up alone. Quarreling with herself. Abrupt and harsh movements, powerful yet vulnerable. He appears in the background, initially with little movement.

Climaxing in her catching him in a headlock. The headlock and his attempts to escape bring about a total harmony of their movements. Their bodies are so strongly hooked into each other that finally, unexpectedly, and paradoxically they are in a unison. Coupled, almost like one being. Inescapably, this moment of maximum violence provokes and yields ultimate closeness.

Very interesting: the correlation of movement and sound. Kettly Noël has brought her choreography in line with the multitalented Patrick and Louise Marty who produce sounds and music using a harp, drums, trumpet, and electric guitar, that they perform with admirable virtuosity. Mamadou Diabaté represents Kettly's strong partner in this strong piece of art.

Ori

The excited audience was unsuspecting that Adedayo Muslim Liadi and the Ijodee Company would energize them even more with Ori.

Ori creates moods, tempers, sentiments rather than telling a story. A flow of motions in formations of 5, 4 + 1, or 3 + 2 dancers, grouped in a multitude of arrangements. Very unique motion design of organic, sometimes tribally appearing actions. The inner truth of humanity in one piece.

You cannot escape the pulsation that Adelaja Saidi Iielaboye's drums and flute are part of. Ceaseless momentum. Thoroughly endorphinizing.

Madagascar

Pierrot Men's photographic exhibition completes, and prepares, the ensemble d'art. If you see his photographs before the performance and thus dive into Madagascan ambience this will deepen the two southern hemisphere experiences you are about to make. Don't miss them.
