Resisting the prescriptions to create new and innovative works constantly, dancer and choreographer Nacera Belaza has pursued the same set of gestures from piece to piece for over 20 years. She draws a line where each point is suffused with the question of life and the quest for powerful inner freedom. In Sur le fil, the artist, along with her sister and partner Dalila Belaza, as well as dancer Aurélie Berland, sets out to create something that is more than a show. In this moment out of time, the stage and house are united by a common vertiginous vibe where opposites come together. In the tricks that they perform at breakneck speed for a long time, the three artists come close to immobility and the deep calm inherent in the depths of being. They each follow their own path, which allows them to break free of dictating habits and mere appearances, becoming more attuned and uniquely open to the others and, more broadly, the world. The dancing of Sur le fil brings the individual to the edges of themselves, on the brink of the void, which is the receptacle for whatever escapes us.  


Anaïs Heluin 

« Et puis, alors que l’hypnose est totale, presque méditative, elle vous réanime, vous oblige à réagir dans des séquences de douche de lumière qui transforment les corps en volutes de fumée plus fines qu’un… fil. À ce jeu, le trio de Nacera, Dalila et Aurélie est un envoutement. »

« C’est dément parce que c’est en dehors de tous les codes chorégraphiques connus. En fait, cela ne ressemble à rien d’autre qu’à un spectacle de Nacera Belaza. »

« Ici, on ne compte pas ses pas, ici, on ne voit pas. On ressent. »
