DANCE PERFORMANCES

Arise by C&F Ben Aim

Arise

This impromptu dance and musical piece is an opportunity for Christian and François Ben Aïm to combine two distinct aspects of their work: on the one hand their love of in situ and site specific pieces, many of which the company has produced during their multiple residencies, and on the other their interest in the concepts of singularity and otherness.

Arise is a thoughtful exploration of the notions of loneliness and elevation. The result is a poetic performance of restraint that effectively reveals what is most alive in each of us. It addresses the idea of the sacred in an approach that oscillates between religious and profane.

Fundamentally evolutionary and evolving, the piece resonates intimately with the performance venues, moulding itself on the spaces, whether sacred or unusual.

The Blind Narcissist by Saeed Hani

The Blind Narcissist

In Greek mythology, Narcissus was the son of the river god Cephissus and the nymph Liriope and famous for his beauty. While he was hiking in the woods as a hunter, several admirers of both sexes fell in love with his appearance – without success since he was only devoted to his own beauty.

Nemesis, the goddess of revenge, decided to punish him for this behaviour and lured him to a lake where he saw the reflection of his image and fell in love without realizing that it was just a picture. Totally impressed by this beauty he was unable to leave. But each time he bent down to kiss it, it seemed to disappear. Narcissus grew more and more thirsty, but could not leave or disturb the pool of water for fear of losing sight of his reflection.

In the end, where he dies of thirst, there appears the narcissus flower, with its bright face and bowed neck.

The Blind Narcissist is a piece created as a duet, which unites the means of contemporary dance, visual arts, video art and spatial art.

It is about the self-destructive love of a man for a narcissist. The relationship in which one partner’s passion is directed to himself inevitably becomes a merciless struggle. For one is the creator and the partner only his creation. “You do not exist without me!”

In the search for the simple, it´s where the complex isfound. Hito shows the mere existence of two friends looking for something as simple as living, and how this nourishes them with closeness and support, and at the same time distances them.
