In residency: Le Lokart company
From September 9th to 13th Flux Laboratory will welcome Le Lokart company to work on its creation: "White Light".
The brutal flash of a medical diagnosis, the whiteness of the swan and, finally, the light of hope. Giving swans a more human perception, transporting them into our world to make their poetry accessible to common sense. Ill people wearing white gowns. Former ordinary men and women, the swans gather, in all their grace and dignity, in a same hospital room.
A free interpretation of Swan Lake, the piece reclaims its story and some of its codes to make room for six contemporary dancers. Between anguish and hope, repulsion and vital strength, Tchaikovsky's music will carry the performers in their fight towards healing, shedding light on what happens behind sanitised hospital doors, on the beauty of mutual support and of human complicity.
Name of residents: Laura Dicembrino, Laura Gaillard, Melissa Kieffer, Pascal Neyron, Margot Rubio et Rudy Sbrizzi
