Lenio Kaklea (GR,FR)

Swiss premiere

duration : approx. 90'

With this choreographed piece, Lenio Kaklea commits to an intimate relationship with the people she came across while she was collecting practices in the town of Aubervilliers. She unfolds a series of choreographic processes that enable her to transfer onto the stage a selection of six practices. She integrates, reproduces and perpetuates the gestures which they are made of, connects the movements together, each time following a specific logic. The form of the solo led her to explore the solitary and intimate exercises through which individuals build themselves and sometimes structure their own dependence. As an introduction, the film Portrait|7: Maryse Emel shows the woman philosopher sharing her practice entitled “Experiencing vertigo without falling into the abyss” with the artist. Another room features the book Encyclopédie pratique, portraits d’Aubervilliers along with a sound creation.
