The party is in full swing; the bodies are moving in unison. In Ballroom, a poetic and political piece, letting go is more important than the necessity of being productive. Or when dance creates community…

What is your release? For Arthur Pérole, it’s a certain intensity of physical vibration. The one that is produced with the Italian tarantella, a traditional dance from Apulia assimilated to trance, and American voguing, a performance inspired by fashion shows in New York in the 1980s. Combining these two sources of inspiration, the choreographer launches his six performers into an uninterrupted dance flow supported by the percussionist rhythms of pizzica, techno and batucada. As soon as the doors open, the spectators are welcomed in an atmosphere of a blaring and carnival-like concert hall. On stage, performers are putting on make-up, making costumes using scissors, moving, talking, interacting with the room. Then, visceral excitement transforms and the dance takes on the appearance of an ancestral and primordial ritual. Stemming from a long process of collective creation, Ballroom is an incredible participative space for bodily and psychological freedom. A shared utopia. Isabelle Calabre
