Christophe Béranger & Jonathan Pranlas-Descours, Des ailleurs sans lieux
France- 2015 -55 minutes

Saturday 26th september at 2.30pm 
Open session
Studio Scène - La Briqueterie 

Strange polyphony of breathing bodies that reveal themselves between, scansions, whisperings, bursts of cries, pearls of singing. With “Des ailleurs sans lieux / Spaces of otherness”, SINE QUA NON ART explores the emblematic figure of the trio from a central choreographic and dramaturgic point: the breath and its rhythmic and vibratory abilities. The dance score is the same for each of the performers. A dance in unison that carry within itself the disharmony specific to the living, and makes imaginary space that the spectators need to get involved in the physical, sensory and emotional experience offered to them.

The choreographic writing is minimalist: the bodies’ architecture, the modes of physical resonance of the breath in the bodies are the only alphabet of this choreographic creation process. Here the artistic movement is initiated from the inner spaces to the outside, to explore the sound and rhythmic capacities of the dancer’s breathe. Choreograph the perception to let happen a dance that is witnessing the organics processes of the breath. Contained air borrows multiple path, located in spaces, in places hardly noticeable, but yet rising in the reality of the here and now of the performance.
