Carte Blanche #10

improvised music and dance evening

around bréve échauffourée

This second Carte Blanche of the season is exceptionally organized around a pre-established frame as it takes as a support a piece of the company, Brève Échauffourée, of which it revisits the themes and stakes with its new performers, the dancer Olivier Nevejans and the musicians Adil Kaced, percussion –voice, and Laurent Guitton, tuba.
Two dancers and two musicians, performers of a common project, are seized in their relationships both on stage and off. In professional situations - performances, rehearsals -, times of daily life and moments of intimacy, they experience themselves in front of the public and reveal their aspirations and their glances on themselves and on others.
The four performers thus expose themselves to a moment of staged artistic collaboration, but which is also at stake in the project Cartes Blanches / Improvised Music and Dance Evening.

creation 2018/2019

L'Escale - Cabaret is a choreographic proposal that invites a multi-faceted encounter between the audience and the actors-dancers through a form offering to live, to experiment and to share in the same evening 3 common positions in relation to the dance: to watch it (to be a spectator), to practice it (to be an amateur), to share it in a festive way (in balls and parties, to be a guest).

The evenings of L'Escale - Cabaret invite the public both to watch the dance, through Small dance pieces presented throughout the evening, and to experience it by individually participating in very simple dance proposals. in a Contemporary ball, and to enter the dance in a free and joyful way, in a Dance-floor, a festive space where dancers and musicians are suitable for the spect-actors to share common moments of crossing, encounter and contamination of all the dances.
