Commissioned by the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique et de Danse (CNSMD) in Paris
Bugger is a response to our primary, indeed primitive, need to interact and connect with others. As social mammals, we instinctively seek contact with others; a direct connection, without intermediary.
Acting as a conduit, Yuval Pick aims to help the students of CNSMD Paris – and through them, a whole new generation of dancers – become spokepersons for all. Together, they construct dance as a shared space that is heterogenous, complex, fertile and moving.
Created using choreographic material from his piece Flowers Crack Concrete, Bugger invites us to head into the unknown, come out of ourselves to find others, and cross the borders that separate us; because dance is, first and foremost, an encounter.
