Khoom

The origin of this work is the disturbing composition by Giacinto Scelsi, "Seven episodes of an unwritten tale of love and death in a distant land". Three dancers, a singer and six musicians lead us on a journey where gesture accompanies even the most intimate vibration within the music and where the space, swept by the dance, reflects the depth of Scelsi’s most particular sounds.
For Giacinto Scelsi (1905-1988) music is first and foremost a question of sound: “premier mouvement de l’immobile – the first movement of the still,” is sound comprised not just of pitch and duration, but also of depth.
Under the direction of Jean-Paul Dessy, the soprano Elise Gäbele and the musicians of Musiques Nouvelles, envelope the circular movements of dancers Odile Gheysens, Frauke Mariën and Shantala Pèpe. Suspended by ropes, in a space expanded by video projections evoking archaic, primeval creatures, they don’t stray far from the music.
It was through Oliver Farge’s aerial dance technique that our desire to transcend weight and come together with the sound vibrations could be realized. Over and beyond technique, a real sensitivity was awakened.
Everything is swathed in the same layer of sound, rolled in the curves of the voice, stung by the vibration of the ropes, sliced by the percussion.

Bonté, Patrick

After his studies in philosophy, humanities and dramatic interpretation, Patrick Bonté wrote many texts for theatre and cinema and directed numerous theatrical productions in Brussels, Antwerp and Quebec. His desire to explore themes related to the enigma of presence through the theatre has led him to explore the  invention  of  languages,  avoiding  textual  narration,  realism  and  psychology.  With  Nicole  Mossoux, whom he met in 1985, he shares the desire to “create images for the stage that have a particular sense, in which tension reigns, a tension tied to the contradictions that nourish it, and yet do not presume to bear a definite truth”. He is also artistic director of Les Brigittines (City of Brussels Contemporary Art Centre for Movement).

Mossoux, Nicole

Nicole Mossoux is a Belgian dancer and choreographer born in Brussels on 3 January 1956.

After studying at the Mudra school of Maurice Béjart, she created several solo pieces in 1978, became interested in psychoanalysis. And then, after meeting the playwright and director Patrick Bonté, she created the first choreography of a long, common and shared series, Juste Ciel (December 10, 1985), presented at the Plan K Refinery, directed By Frédéric Flamand.

A few years later, the two artists founded the Company Mossoux-Bonté, which never ceased to melt dance and theater in a single language, exploring the troubled areas of sensibility and the unconscious, in a strange familiarity to meet the spectator's imagination.
