VU - VIBRATIONS URBAINES
Backed by a dynamic musical score, 4 dancers ”vibrate reality”. VU - Vibrations Urbaines offers « moments of humanity » that give meaning and life to an urban space. This work is a pulsing ode to the rhythm of hearts, bodies, and sounds.
Full members of a musical and danced score, performers accompanied by movable and sound objects, evolve at the heart of a scenography where the core is an open place, a journey between daily and extra daily. 4 independent dancers, touching as well as skilled end up meeting, to finally interact and help each other. This urban vibration dictates nothing and nobody, it passes under the eyes of the spectators, they take the train moving when they wish, or watch it move away. The public is free to choose what to see or where to look.
Seize the present moment, follow an unanticipated reality, grasp the springboard of the imagination. [...] When words, appearance, and sound rhyme.
