CINÉDANSE #2 Xamûma Fane Lay Dëm

CineDanse To watch

"The language of each individual is built in his or her history, feeding on everything that comes along. Words and gestures, sounds and colors, smells, materials, symbols, emotions, joys and sufferings... We compose our way of expressing ourselves by relying on the languages offered to us by others. And when two individuals meet, they launch into the elaboration of a common language, a language to exchange, to create together." For this dance and literature encounter commissioned by the Concordanses Festival in 2019, Amala Dianor accepts a shift in choreography and negotiates the presence and role of words and gestures with novelist and playwright Denis Lachaud, whose texts have been staged by Pierre Notte, Maria Zachenska and Arthur Nauzyciel, among others, but also by Lachaud himself. Beyond the simple recording of the performance, this episode of CinéDanse invites the views of two new authors into this cross writing: the portrait photographer Jérôme Bonnet who signs the lights of the film at the invitation of the visual artist Grégoire Korganow who directs it.
