Snapshots #2 - Léa Lansade

With Snapshots, choreographers Christian and François Ben Aïm propose  a series of solos performed by women. This work brings into dialogue  the springs of intimacy and the hectic forces of the outside world. It  unfolds as a fragmented study of what makes up an identity, seen as a  moving matter.

Each solo is an opportunity to bring out a new energy, underground,  unknown, a reserved part. This study borrows from haiku, the poetry of  the moment. Here, through movement and gesture, the choreographers seek  to capture this emotion, immediate and fleeting, in the manner of a  photographer capturing the decisive moment.

Short pieces, light forms for the stage as well as in situ, they can  be presented indoors or outdoors. These solos can live autonomously,  alone, or be associated with each other, in a configuration adapted to  each occasion and space.
 Eventually, this series of short female portraits will constitute a  mosaic, a kaleidoscope with multiple entries and combinations.

> The second solo, Snapshots #2 Léa Lansade,  is a nocturnal crossing between dream and vigil on the Metamorphoses  nocturnes, first quartet of Ligeti, performed by the Quartet Voce. This  expressive, extravagant piece by Ligeti conjures up a dreamlike  universe, sliding from tragedy to irony with subtlety. It is through the  prism of dreams and the unconscious that this Snapshot is spun, to  summon in a tone sometimes serious, sometimes burlesque: bewitchment,  regression, freedom and evanescence!

Ben Aïm, Christian & François

For more than twenty years, Christian and François BEN AÏM have been building a work rich of poetry and high standards, fraternal bond and singularity.

At the end of a multidisciplinary training combining dance, physical theater and circus, each one follows his path as a performer, then the two brothers meet to create À l’abri du regard des hommes, avant d’aller mourir ailleurs, a hybrid dance-theater piece which marks the beginning of their collaboration in 1997. Twenty pieces will follow which anchor their fieldwork as much as they travel internationally. They draw their inspiration from literary, musical and pictorial sources, and intimately mixing artistic disciplines on the stage : En plein coeur (2006), Valse (2010), The Ogresse on archives and her dog (2011), Lightness of Storms (2014), Burn, rebellious hearts (2017), Mirages — boreal souls (2018), Arise (2019), JESTS (2021).

Marked by an uncompromising energy, summoning the performer to an intimate relationship with movement, the dance of the BEN AÏM brothers offers, beyond a speech, an experience, a "crossing" that the dancer performs in front of our eyes, that he lives each time with the sincerity of a full and entire presence.

With this demanding writing comes an art of composition which gives birth to the stage an imagination borrowing from dreams, from the marvelous of the tale and from invisible realities. Through a subtle effect of empathy, the audience enters an unstable world, where everything is the object of poetic questioning - a world to be experienced together.
