In order to be them we must be us...

In the context of Twice, Emmanuel Eggermont and Robyn Orlin,  two choreographers from universes with very different aesthetics, have  worked for the first time on the conception of a piece for a young  audience. Performed by the same duet of dancers, these two scores form  both a programme which is both sensitive and committed, reflecting two  ways of approaching the world, while dancing and sharing it. In La méthode des phosphènes,  Emmanuel Eggermont let himself be guided by the luminous phenomena that  form on the surface of the retina, so as to imagine a dance which is as  fluid and ephemeral as a coloured impression. Dreamers of transitory  worlds, the dancers follow this luminous shimmering like a score, an  imaginary trace generating movement. Faithful to the intransigence that  characterises her, the South African choreographer Robyn Orlin has  decided to take on Otherness and the phenomena of violence and rejection  which it creates, by addressing those who are its first victims:  children and adolescents, very quickly confronted with the question of  discrimination. In order to be them, we must be us... operates a  transformation of the attention and perception of otherness through the  comprehension of our own inwardness: “So as to be them, we have to be  ourselves.”

Orlin, Robyn

Robyn Orlin was born in 1955 in Johannesburg and obtained bursaries to study in London (London Contemporary Dance School) and then in Chicago (School of Art Institute).

Since her first performance in Johannesburg in 1980, she has attempted to redefine choreography and the art of theatre in her country and has become one of the most committed anti-apartheid choreographers. She starts from the principle that “dance is political”, and in her pieces she examines the social and cultural situation in South Africa: its influences, its history, its rifts and its disintegration. The choreography then creates “an iconoclastic dance which puts its foot in it”, a dance-chronicle of today's South African society, skilfully handling irony and derision; a dance that shamelessly stirs up references and identities, blending traditional popular culture with the radical avant-garde, a dance that is capable of breaking down the artist-audience barrier by putting the audience at the centre of the event.

Robyn Orlin came to France for the first time in April 2000 at the invitation of La Filature Scène Nationale, Mulhouse, with “Daddy, I've seen this piece six times before...”

She achieved immediate recognition: Rencontres Chorégraphiques Internationales de Seine-Saint-Denis, Montpellier Dance Festival, Théâtre de la Ville, Paris, followed by tours all over the world.

In 2004, Robyn Orlin took part in the inauguration of the Centre National de la Danse, Pantin and composed a solo for Sophiatou Kossoko as part of “Vif du Sujet”.

In 2005 she created “When I take off my skin and touch the sky with my nose, only then I can see little voices amuse themselves...”, a piece with 6 singers from the South African Opera, then, during the summer, “Hey dude... i have talent... i'm just waiting for god...,” a solo for the dancer-choreographer Vera Mantero.
 From September 2005 Robyn Orlin was in residency for two years at the Centre National de la Danse, Pantin. In April 2007 her “L'Allegro, il penseroso ed il moderato” was premièred at the Paris National Opera.
