Seeds (retour à la terre)

Seeds (retour à la terre)

Seeds (retour à la terre)

Between joyous ode to Earth and dark fable about the dangers that threaten it, Seeds, seeds in English, is an ecological and danced fable. Carolyn Carlson, a major figure in contemporary dance, calls for an awareness of future generations. On stage, three dancers meet Elyx, a small virtual character created by visual artist Yacine Aït Kaci. Elyx is a man as children draw them, made of a pencil line and a big mischievous smile. He lives his adventures on a giant screen, from which he rains seeds to sow life on earth. Together they are weaving a world apart, a fragile world that needs to be cared for. A world that can also create wonders with its giant trees and its moving lights. A universe in which every gesture, every movement breathes a natural harmony with its environment. Seeds sows hope for new ideas, new desires. With this piece, Carolyn Carlson, who still dances with the infinite, questions and invites young and old to imagine together the Earth of tomorrow.

Carlson, Carolyn

California-born Carolyn Carlson defines herself first and foremost as a nomad. From San Francisco Bay to the University of Utah, from the Alwin Nikolais company in New York to Anne Béranger’s in France, from Paris Opera Ballet to Teatrodanza La Fenice in Venice, from the Théâtre de la Ville de Paris to Helsinki, from Ballet Cullberg to La Cartoucherie in Paris, from the Venice Biennale to Roubaix, Carlson is a tireless traveller, always seeking to develop and share her poetic universe.

She arrived in France in 1971 the beneficiary of Alwin Nikolais’s ideas about movement, composition and teaching. The following year, with Rituel pour un rêve mort, she wrote a poetic manifesto that defined an approach to her work that she has adhered to ever since: dance that is strongly oriented towards philosophy and spirituality. Carlson prefers the term ‘visual poetry’ to ‘choreography’ to describe her work. She creates works that express her poetic thoughts and a form of complete art within which movement occupies a special place. 

For four decades, Carlson has had significant influence and success in many European countries. She played a key role in the birth of French and Italian contemporary dance through the GRTOP (theatre research group) at Paris Opera Ballet and Teatrodanza at La Fenice.

She has created over 100 pieces, a large number of which are landmarks in the history of dance, including Density 21.5, The Year of the Horse, Blue Lady, Steppe, Maa, Signes, Writings on Water and Inanna. In 2006, her work was rewarded with the first ever Golden Lion given to a choreographer by the Venice Biennale.

Nowadays, Carolyn Carlson is director of two organisations: the Atelier de Paris-Carolyn Carlson, an international centre for masterclasses, residencies and creating new works, which she founded in 1999 and the National Choreographic Centre Roubaix Nord-Pas de Calais until December 2013, which produces and tours shows all over the world.

Born in 1977, Fabien Plasson is a video director specialized in the field of performing arts (dance , music, etc).

He first experimented with the creation of installations and cinematic objects.

From 2001 to 2011, he was in charge of Ginger & Fred video Bar’s programming at La Maison de la Danse in Lyon. He discovered the choreographic field and the importance of this medium in the dissemination, mediation and pedagogical approach to dance alongside Charles Picq, who was a brilliant video director and the director of the video department at that time.

Today, Fabien Plasson is the video director at La Maison de la Danse and in charge of the video section of Numeridanse.tv, an online international  video library, and continues his creative activities, making videos of concerts, performances and also creating video sets for live performances.
