Swiss dancer and choreographer Lorena Dozio continues her pursuit of the invisible but this time she’s using words, with her new work focusing on the human voice and the relationship between body and text. In this disassociation between movement and its description, Dozio is looking for a way out in order to conjure visitors and ghosts in a dialogue between life and death.
The choreography deals with the relationship between the surrounding environment and the limits of the body. Lorenda Dozio explores the description like the spirit of the environment, the climate and sensations that a landscape may evoke. Like in a film sequence in which conditions gradually change and transform until an encounter occurs with another body, one that is immaterial but made present by the dancer’s movement. Then there is the question of entering inside the body on the stage through “extreme” experiences like a trance or apnea. What goes on in the mind and in the body during these physical states of altered consciousness?
Sound and sound technology are an important component of the dramaturgy since they make it possible to conjure presences and absences, to draw the audience into the stage space by creating a sensorial immersion through quadrophony. A dialogue in real time between the body of Lorena Dozio, the voice Stéphane Bouquet, the sound and music of Kerwin Rolland.
