A choreographic reflection to the beat of a march… but disrupted by Dada thoughts! A creation that will set a date in the history of the dance movement.
We have long known that marching is the origin, or almost the origin, of all dance, and if the classical dance moves are called “steps”, this is not just a happy coincidence. Marching has always evoked the idea of order and uniformity in our minds, both for its highly regulated structure and for the linear space in which it most often occurs. So what would happen if, from this perfectly organised cadence, with its “response” chants and united advances came discrepancies, asymmetry, more complex rhythms superposed one on top of the other? And if, in addition, the chants were to fragment into several phonemes of Dadaist poetry and simultaneously polyglot poems, to be no more than substance, a polyrhythmic resonant landscape produced live on stage? Can we still talk of “marching” when its traditional and controlled markers seem to sink into a form of chaos, when the group seems to undulate rather than advance in step?
“If we introduce a little bit of this Dadaist spirit into our vision of marching, and a little bit of marching into the randomness of Dadaism, we can then ask ourselves how a group of people can work on a common subject and, at the same time, move diversely” replies Daniel Linehan.
A word from Brigitte Lefèvre
Daniel Linehan has surprised the world of modern dance with his extremely physical performances that blend voices and whispering into body movements. The American attended Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker’s P.A.R.T.S , where he learned that “everything” was possible: singing, speaking, dancing, using video and thus creating his own world.
