LE RENARD NE S’APPRIVOISE PAS

At the crossing between dance and visual arts, this dance solo is questioning the core of performing, exhibiting, exposing oneself. Is sight a weapon ? Can it be reversed ?Nina Santes uses tricks to cheat our vision : if she closes her eyes or if she is blind, can she make us disappear ? Using simulation, phosphorescence, songs and magical feats, Nina plays about with our perception.

This solo is the second part of the Trois Soli project, a research laboratory, and a preliminary for a new collective creation coming in 2014. These three short studies, created in 2012, associate freely dance, music, old and new technologies, acrobatics and illusion.

A song by Ivor Cutler :

“I worn my elbows down to the bone for you

I worn my elbows down to the bone for you

I worn my elbows down to the bone, down to the bone

I worn my elbows down to the bone for you

How can you wear your elbows down for me ?

How can you wear your elbows down for me ?

How do you wear your elbows down that make for me them shillings and pounds ?

How can you wear your elbows down for me ?…”
