No Man's Land

Conception & Chorégraphy: Valérie Rivière

 

Length: 45 minutes

Production: 2018

 

 This creation talks about sensitive themes, about liberty, about identity.

“No man's land” is a place where anything can occur.

Garden of Eden, emptiness, the no, then oblivion.

A connection happening in an interstice.

 

This choreographic duo tries to enlighten the place of foreigners in the society.

The body talks, it lights our presence in the world and challenges the intimate fragility of the traveller.

This man and this woman, breathless itinerants, run through their wandering damaged journey here on earth.

 

 

“No Man's Land is fascinating to me by its poetically efficient research. Electronic Creole sounds coming from the Indian Ocean, get combined with dance and stay on the edge of migratory flows. The music creates the choreographic space and discusses with poems of M.Houellebecq, E.Dickinson, C.Faber,... which are personified by singers and fonkézers of Reunion Island.  These voices are the bridge between the 17 years separating the previous version to this new one and they update the political side of the performance.”

Labelle

 

 

“Nowadays, we had to recreate this choreographic performance to question, once again, those themes like exile, clandestinity, and destiny of refugees. Today, we can't ignore the reality of migrants and all the ordeals they go through. So let's dance”
