Air

A chamber opera for two dancers and four singers: Air, composed by Vincent Dupont in 2013, places the audience at the heart of the dialogue between movement and music. Inspired by Les Tambours d’avant,  a documentary shot by Jean Rouch in Niger in 1971, the choreographer  reinvents the final scene of this short film – an old woman starting a  dance of possession, wrapped in a blanket – to imagine another ritual  relating to his own culture.
The dancer Aline Landreau accompanies Vincent Dupont in this exploration  that gives pride of place to the voice, under the musical direction of  Valérie Joly. The singers are positioned behind the audience; breathing  rhythms and litanies, based on texts by the poet Charles Pennequin, make  the air vibrate on either side of the room, with the dancers joining in  the vocal composition. Attracted by material of an incantatory nature  and fond of crossing disciplines, in Air Vincent Dupont opens the possibility of a sensitive and sensorial experience.
