  • Karine Ledoyen met with close to 20 professional dancers to collect their testimonies in the form of interviews.

    “I thought I was starting a work centred around mourning and as a starting point I wanted to be inspired by stories of dancers who had left dance. After listening to all the interviews of the dancers of different generations from ballet, contemporary and social dance, I realized that what began to stand out more and more was the celebration of dance.”

    The interviews represented the gateway to this new creation. They became sound and visual material for the show, in addition to developing a narrative frame that resonates with the dancers on stage. It is within this relation between the recorded testimonies and the presence of the dancers on stage that a plural dramaturgy is able to develop. A game of comings and goings between reality and fiction that echoes far beyond dance.
