Synchronicity

An essential work by Carolyn Carlson, Synchronicity is the expression of her sensitive and enlightened perception of these events that dramatically change one’s life. Inspired by Jung, she explores the meaning of those strange coincidences that resonate in oneself with a particular sharpness. A clock that stops when a beloved father dies. A meeting that changes a destiny. Being reunited with a loved one by an incredible turn of fate. These situations arise during intense emotions, unique circumstances, key turning points. They also arise between two beings driven by a very close relationship: sisters, lovers, mother and child.

People experiencing such emotions let the intentions of the unconscious brush against the surface of their consciousness. It is then necessity that guides their existence. On images imagined by the choreographer, in which time assumes that of subjective and emotive perception, the dancers plunge into these deep waters of danger, rebellion, love, loss, regret, madness, departure, and pass through these symbolic correspondences that metamorphose vision for all time. The leaping impetus of the bodies on the stage and the cinematographic sequences echo one another in an intimate and disconcerting manner. Interpreted by the unique personalities of nine dancers, this creation lays bare the vital aspirations that drive us.

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.
