Somewhere in the middle of the infinite

45min

With this original show, Amala Dianor takes us to infinite territories, ones we need to clear and decipher: the territories of human nature, that bring together three individuals whose stories take root in Burkina Faso, Algeria and Senegal. Countries where people keep aspiring for better, leading them to act, move, fight… to make choices. Notions like borders and freedom resonate strongly with each other.
Through dance, the choreographer tackles these very issues, well aware of mankind’s unbridled desire to always possess more. Yet, he invites us to this “somewhere”, to take a step back so we can stop and relish the possibility of interaction, mutual assistance and attentiveness between these three men, united somewhere in the midst of infinity. They will poetically question their own freedom, and test their own borders through this encounter, during which African dance, hip hop and contemporary dance will take the stage, leading to clash or synergy.
