TAC. TAC. by Cie Nuna

© Cie Nuna/YoungSoon Cho Jaquet

Boxes, sticks and casters... Props are present on the stage, one couldn't tell their function. An original mystery proposed, not without malice, in Tac.Tac., a solo by choreographer and dancer YoungSoon Cho Jaquet, from which those inert companions disrupt the boundaries of senses and perception as they are set to move. Here, the dancer becomes a shaman, owner of a secret grammar of items she gives to us through the filter of her emotions.

This piece was born of the encounter of the choreographer YoungSoon Cho Jaquet and visual artist Jonas Marguet, and of the desire to explore a common sensibility bound to hybridization and optical illusion.

This production of The Firebird, directed by Janni Younge and choreographed by Jay Pather, is a puppet and dance performance set to Stravinsky’s original score. Janni Younge’s Firebird draws on the symbolism and dramaturgy of Fokine’s original choreography (based on figures from Russian folklore) and reinterprets them in a contemporary South African setting, using larger-than-life puppets and African dance forms.
