Romeo and Juliet

Ha ! Ha !


Ha Ha!, a part of iDANS’ “impossible Dance” series, is haunted by a chorus of laughter that follows a meticulous notation system. Relying on an intelligently crafted dramaturgy of the audience, Maguy Marin’s work was met by the public with physical and verbal (over)reaction. The work is no longer touring, therefore iDANS is unable to present this masterpiece.

Ball


Refiguring theatrical space through the metaphorical lens of a ball, Estonian choreographer Nele Suisalu and her French “dancing partner” Florent Hamon enquire into the dynamics of sociability and explore the dramaturgy of face-to-face interactions. Transforming the theatrical encounter to a cozy and intimate one through their improvised performance, they reveal not only the discursive but also the embodied dimensions of communication. They delve into the desires, expectations and wishes of the audience in order to investigate the collective “artifice” we invest in.

Coffee with Pina - A film with the choreographer Pina Bausch.


Coffee with Pina is a film that refuses to adhere to conventions. It is not fiction, yet it is not quite documentary, either. More than anything else, this film is a study of documentation, memory and experience. This film creates a stream of consciousness that immerses the viewer in beauty, strength and an intense joie de vivre. Within these one can find a rare ingredient that can be defined as realistic optimism.

-- Smadar Shefffi, Haaretz

Kontakthof with Ladies and Gentlemen over 65


When Pina Bausch revived her seminal 1978 dance piece in 2000, she opted to use a cast of seniors, previously untrained in stage dancing, with stunning, if sometimes uncomfortable results. The piece is set in a dance hall, with the participants preparing for an encounter and hoping to find love. Against a background of sentimental German songs of the 1930s, jazz, and tangos, the performers, all aged between 65 and 75, enact mating rituals and sexual frenzy apparently more suited to those less than half their ages.

sans


It is difficult if not impossible to translate verbal jokes or jokes based on language. In a way, they set one group apart from another. A joke explained in a different language is no longer funny. However, bodily humor can travel more easily and is more accessible. sans is one of the best examples of the contagion of bodily humor.

Yamashita invites us to fill in the gaps between body and language. From this confrontation of languages and simultaneous readings emerges a novel space, a zone of freedom entirely open to imagination. Delicate and nuanced, It is written there. is a remarkable choreographic treatise on communication.

Loin...


French artist Rachid Ouramdane’s solo connects all three themes of iDANS Festivals so far. Loin...(Far…) is a multi-media performance which explores the conflicts between identity and experience of foreignness, tracing a series of autobiographic, poetic and choreographic journeys through Algeria, Cambodia and Vietnam; and through his father’s diaries during his military service in Indochina. It is a performance which exposes the continuity of emotions across the figures of the colonizer and the colonized as ambiguous positions in an endless game of mirrors.

Laughing Hole


In the throes of an eccentric laughter often indistinguishable with crying, the artists physically and symbolically carry the burden of the words they gradually reveal. Commands, headlines, sound-bites, slogans and confessions overlap and involve us in a game of shifting meanings in ecclectic forms. Are we in a detention camp? Or are we part of a political demonstration? Or is this a battlefield?

Concerto


In the improvised concert/performance Concerto which undoubtedly requires extraordinary physical dexterity and virtuosity, Ivo Dimchev’s voice subtly travels between the extremes of affects, yet neither laughing nor crying, always remaining in a poetic liminality crafted by the artist and his musical collaborator Emilian Gatzov. Dimchev captivates the audience who feels prompted to ask, “Ivo, how many can you be?”
