I inhabit a sacred wound

2018

How can we transform the world’s chaos ? How does the violence of oppression find its echo in an individual’s body ? How does the ambivalence of our choices reveal our relationship to freedom ? «J’habite une blessure sacree» seeks a way beetwen imbalance and rootedness, softness and force, intimacy and openness.

This solo dance show is conceived as a dialogue between two necessities intertwined : the metaphysical quest and the struggle for emancipation ! Out of these apparently contradictory approaches emerges a central theme, that of the double. Real body, imaginary body. Visible body, potential body. The rebel body driven by an imagined genealogy (« I inhabit imaginary ancestors « says Aimé Cesaire’s Poem) ; and the body also driven by another utopia, this time existential. Duration : 45 min. All public show from 10 years onwards.

J’habite une blessure sacrée is the sequel of the dance piece DEPWOFONDIS (2014) presented with success at the Theatre Golovine in July 2016 during The Avignon OFF Festival.

« J’habite une blessure sacrée » is recommended by Festival d’Avignon (P 67 of the programm).
