Out of any present + A gesture is nothing but a threat

Sofia Dias & Vítor Roriz

Portugal

This double bill combines two recent performances of the Portuguese dancers Sofie Diaz and Vitor Roziz. A gesture that is nothing but a threat (2011) and Out of any present (2012) are two variations on the complex relationship between word and movement. In the first hypnotizing duet it's the words that are dancing by applying choreographic principles to them, such as repetition and rhythm. In this way, meaning is less important than musicality and the pleasure of the language games is quite contagious.

The second performance builds on the same principles and is an uninterrupted spiral of actions and situations, inspired by the book Mémoires d'Hadrien by Marguerite Yourcenar.

Two inventive and minimalist choreographies in one evening !
