« Distance to distance, in space like in time. Significant gaps in between, from time to time. »
Social bonds are a recurring theme in the choreographic work of Sylvie Pabiot (A strait, 2005; Rezo, 2008; On a provisional basis, 2012), as she considers dance as a place where society and interpersonal relationships are interpreted.
Every now and then narrates the erosion of social bonds in a time when our physical encounters are farther and farther apart in time and space.
The social ties uniting us have undergone a profound change since the 60’s.
Our individual liberties rose, while bringing along the erosion of our sense of community. Traditional patterns of family, work, religious groups, friendships have vanished, giving way to new ways of being. The ensuing digital revolution is growing every day, extending this profound transformation of our relations to the community, to others, and to ourselves.
