Fantasie minor

Above all, four feet, which take over the stage as if they were conquering a vacant space. In all their heaviness, they assume their contradictions in response to the suggestions of the twirling notes of the music: bad-boy attitudes, bent backs, legs spread wide... These bodies are not to be trifled with. However, it doesn’t take much for the lightness of Schubert’s Fantasy in F minor to become a playground for these two performers experienced in urban dance. Picking up the rhythm with twitching shoulders or legs, but also launching into a pas de deux that is equally fraternal and competitive, all in lifts, glissés, piqués and distorted pointes... With choreographer Marco da Silva Ferreira, the weight of the bodies, the weight of the music and the weight of the classical or hip hop codes are lifted to offer new variations, and invent a new space for sharing open to sensibilities. From fragile attempts to virtuoso absurdities, another vision of grace.
