Ignorance and attachment to our uncontrolled desires are the principle causes which keep us from lifting ourselves up spiritually, maintaining us chained to this cycle of suffering. My intention consists of making this vision of the world and life visible by symbolising it with an entanglement of long ropes in which the dancers are intertwined, attached to each other and submitted to a “machine” which they cannot grasp, overhanging them and incessantly kick-starting a new cycle of life. The choreographic writing will articulate itself around one central scenographic object, a giant “spider web” in which bodies are imprisoned. This creative procedure in a constraint is a habit in my work and this time I want this constraint to materialise, in order to provide a counterpoint for this reality invisible to the eye. There is no unique and limited shape for this truth, everyone has his or her own way of interpreting the human condition and reconnecting with one’s spirituality, the dramaturgical challenge is to succeed in finding the codes of this incredible enigma of life, in order to cast off the chains of suffering and free the human beings.
