Transmut 2 soli

First performed 2010

Choreography Marie-Laure Agrapart

Marie-Laure Agrapart created a solo for herself and then, passed it on to two performers: Aurélie Cantin and Roberto Forleo. On stage, two soli, masculine and feminine, segue one to the other, applying the “reverse” principle and reproducing the same choreographic score “because the strangeness of a gesture is fascinating to produce and perturbs our usual direction of movement when we look at it backwards”.

The pointe work used in the choreographic work is not considered as an external object but an integral part of the body that plays a role in creating a strange character: “Transmut is a character that duplicates itself, that transforms itself physically and graphically by standing en pointe, on these extra few centimetres that spin and flip over our two performers. Patti Smith, post-punk singer from New York inspired Transmut, this somewhat androgynous character. Throughout the creation process, texts, music and poetry nourished the rhythm of the work”.
