Piece without music for three performers
A prolific choreographer who is drawn to risk and the unexpected, in her latest creation Ayelen Parolin engages with a desire to make life simpler. A difficult task, as we know! What might a “simple” dance look like, presenting itself naked in its spontaneity and sincerity? Doesn’t it involve such an innocent and utopian approach that it becomes ridiculous?
Ayelen Parolin, who fears neither ridicule nor the absurd, takes up the challenge and its contradictions. In a society that has recently been saturated with the words of experts, she believes it essential to revert to forms of naivety and explore the comic and the idiotic. In the company of three loyal performers who can do anything (dancers, actors, clowns, man-machines, man-sets), at the heart of everything she creates a show of Dadaist inspiration, turned upside down and profoundly human. Simple and essential.
