A performance that takes place as the sun rises… The stage fills with 70 dancers and 10 cellos and this wide green-choregraphy, a jewel embedded in Paris, is in itself a whole world within the world behind… A ceremony that is both open and secret… A pure delight to experience at dawn in the capital city, far from the madding crowd, and to enjoy just before going to work and going back to bed, the city just awakening…
A rhizome is the underground part of a hardy plant : it feeds underground species that can consume it. Either broken or cut, the rhizome can grow again from any part of its stem, and after it withers, it enriches the ground with organic matter.
From this natural beauty (that has been praised by Gilles Deleuze though differently), the choregrapher Sharon Fridman has imagined a human-sized fresco on what binds us together, on the possibility we have to move, either individually or together, and to regenerate.
Taking its inspiration from nature, Rizoma weaves and feeds the bonds between bodies and places, between dance and the Earth.
Like the rhizome, this play can be created and develop from anywhere, filling gaps, growing like grass, between and among objects. This is a geographic composition that uses natural elements from the site where it develops : bodies, voices, urban architecture, natural light.
A green chroregraphy which ambition is to unfold in complete harmony with the occupied space and the moment when the performance takes place.
