SOMA, 19:00

The fundamental basis of the performance is the human body in all its glory and ugliness.The vocabulary of physical movement within the performance is defined by its abilities and inabilities. What the human body is capable of expressing and what its limitations are? The parts of a mannequin are used in order to shed light on the imperfections of the body contrasting with the seemingly perfect and proportionate pieces of plastic. In spite of its flawlessness, the mannequin remains cold, breathless and soulless.

Métamorphose, 20:30

The daring solo Métamorphose is the personal confession of a dancer and choreographer from Madagascar, but also of an entire female generation. She reveals her strength and defiance, as well as her fragility, fears and dreams. We become witnesses of the dynamic human transformation of a strong African female personality, from stoic calm and stability to wild, uncontrollable madness. In stark contrast to the warm, intimate light, the performer removes one outer garment after another, destroying taboos, until she achieves a sense of total freedom.
