“Terres en-corps” is a choreographic, musical, artistic and light creation by the dance-studies section, led by Annabelle Bonnéry, the associated artists and the choreographic eye of Delphine Savel.
It is part of an arts/sciences project on the topic of “raw earth as an ecological material” conducted throughout the 2016/2017 academic year.
An extension of the “Les pieds sur terre” project (2015/2016), “Terres en-corps” explores different types of earth: white, red and gray earth and clay-limestone fibers. It touches on a more physical and performance-related aspect in the body’s relationship with the material and with the territory. Embark on a journey between Africa and the West based on a common material: raw earth. Explore this ecological material by means of the dancing bodies and the powers of the imagination.
“Terres en-corps” was developed in partnership with the Maison de la Danse via an artistic itinerary conducted throughout the year with the Burkinabe choreographer Serge Aimé Coulibaly.
Following the performances at the Maison de la Danse in March, two extra performances will be put on at the Astrée Theater during the Arthémiades festival.
To tie in with “Terres en-corps”, before the May 30 show, the Burkinabe sculptor and bronze smelter Abou Traoré and the gallery owner François Deneulin will give you a unique opportunity to experience a bronze casting session using the traditional lost wax (or “cire perdue”) technique!
