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.

She went all out at all times: Loïe Fuller, the early avantgardist and inventor of the “serpentine dance”. Choreographer Ola Maciejewska from Paris has discovered the silk moth (Bombyx mori) as a metaphor for the critical potential in Fuller’s spectacular dance costume: movement as an interplay between body and object. Maciejewska’s fascinating “flights” of three black “serpentine moths” are such hybrids as well, defying classification as either one or the other.

Triadisches Ballett (Triadic Ballet) is a ballet developed by Oskar Schlemmer. It premiered in Stuttgart, on 30 September 1922, with music composed by Paul Hindemith, after formative performances dating back to 1916, with the performers Elsa Hotzel and Albert Burger. The ballet became the most widely performed avant-garde artistic dance and while Schlemmer was at the Bauhaus from 1921 to 1929, the ballet toured, helping to spread the ethos of the Bauhaus.
