Accompanied by an earthy score, “sung as if it were a hit playing every day on the radio”, this is the revenge of the body, so badly abused in this choreographer’s last appearance, in the 2004 edition of the festival. This time, he states: “We hold hands, standing in a circle, the old way. In order to exist, dance has to give up chants, circles and music - surreptitiously. And surreptitiously we are on the lookout for an alternative clearing that allows us to inhabit the world in a basic ballet.”
