the empty set

« Play » or Mind training matters

I discovered «Play» this morning.

A choreography danced by Shantala Shivalingappa and Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui I would love to go and see.

Just imagine, two of my favourite dancers and choreographers united in the same production: a dream. This ballet is dedicated to Pina Bausch who had the idea to match these two personalities.

« Play » is both a passing of time, and a vast playground, a place for experiments, for reaching out. An attempt to not be alone, with the desire to participate in the movement of the world rather than to be a passive spectator.

In such a game, there is also the awareness that in the playing lies the very meaning of our presence here, (which is) fleeting and real.

Checkout the tour dates to see if it comes near you.
