First of all, Eddies is about a choreographer and a composer’s shared interest in conceiving – using their respective arsenals of creative materials – a new space onstage, a common space.
The electronic sound and the French medieval songs spread and diffract, barely brushing against each other, facing off against each other, and the four dancers tackle it all, creating spatial trajectories and embodying this acoustic universe, shifting easily between lyricism and futurism.
Dance and music are like waves, ebbing and flowing, jets of energy striating the space, rendering it live, palpable.
A convergence of materials, this quartet invites us to experience something new and hallucinatory, a community ritual for our time.
This piece can also be performed with the piece loom and PlayBach.
“In the short piece Eddies (2015), the meat of the production is the encounter with composer Samuel Sighicelli. This piece for four dancers – Julie Charbonnier, Madoka Kobayashi, Adrien Martins and Thibault Desaules – explores the undulating nature of sound. Bodies vibrate, undulate and spread across the stage, like music.”
