A manifesto of the body, movement and voice, giving birth to a new hymn that brings us together.
After performing Acta est Fabula at the Théâtre National de la Danse in Chaillot in 2018, Yuval Pick instantly felt it would make a big impact on young people, thanks to its madcap energy and free-spirited vibe – so he decided to create a shorter version especially for young audiences.
Accompanied by his five dancers, Yuval Pick creates a piece about unison: a manifesto of the body, movement and voice, giving birth to a new hymn that brings us together.
The sound creation bounces from popular songs to snippets of sound and group movements to draw a colorful, rhythmic piece. In Lil’Acta, Yuval Pick leads us into an exhilarating choreographic universe that blends humor, expressiveness and a touch of madness to create a common fable.
“Yuval Pick’s fabulous, energizing Lil’Acta, the pocket-sized version of Acta est fabula, is a must-see on the Numeridanse platform, giving hope to young people and encouraging everyone to get moving again, even within their four walls.”
“This piece is challenging in the sense that the format makes no concessions to speak to family audiences (…), yet it is no less interesting, taking us on a journey of sound and vision with a humorous, playful approach that delights the senses.”
