CAR C'EST PAR LA FRAGILITE QUE LA REVOLUTION OEUVREPRINT THIS PAGE
Car c’est par la fragilité que la révolution œuvre is a solo work performed by the choreographer. It experiments with the embodiment of fragility as a means of composing a disobliging relation between the self and its world. From the solitude of the self-at-work to the precarious relation between the multitude and the communal, this work unfolds as a series of gestures, movements, textures, and chimeras that perform a fragile utopian politics. How can a single body perform the multitude? How can dance perform our political undoing, discarding the subjectifications that fortify us and hold us still? How can we invent new ways for the performer and the audience to collaborate? As fragile bodies in fragile landscapes, this work finds another relation to political sovereignty that brings us together in precarious, ever-shifting relationships.
The title comes from Paul B. Preciado’s article in Libération, “Le courage d’être soi” from 21 November, 2014.
