“The Sensemaker” (Solo, 25 minutes)

 

A phone, an answering machine, a chair, a suit, a pair of high heeled shoes. Bits and pieces of music and audio texts switching erratically, as varied as they are unexpected. The same moves, over and over, interpreted in different ways. A meaningful choreography performed by a mute dancer. Panicked looks, jerky moves, but a smile, always, even though it’s tense.

‘Please show us the full extent of your motivation and dynamism’. Let the job interview begin.

 

Choreography, interpretation and audio editing – Elsa Couvreur

Lights – Marc Gaillard

 

 

“Drop the Gogo” (Group work, 25 minutes)

 

Using as a pretext the gogo-dancers you might meet in a club, and from whom you mostly expect that they’ll fulfill their role as living and breathing ornaments, Drop the Gogo questions our ambitions and fantasies: are they really our own or were they subtly forced on us? A journey through the land of narcissism, this short performance showcases our dependence to appearances and our vulnerability to the gaze of others.

In the mirror of sexiness, your reflection is distorted. Only one thing is for certain: the strip-tease won’t be the one you’re expecting.

 

Choreography – Elsa Couvreur in collaboration with the dancers

Interpretation – Sophie Amman, Iona D’Annunzio, Cédric Fadel Hattab, Margaux Monetti, Mathieu Parola, Noëlle Quillet

Musical arrangement and sound technique – Nicolas Senjaric

Lights – Marc Gaillard

Scenery – Paul Rauly
