Froufrou

Notions of identity, transformation and anonymity have always been at the heart of my work. I'm interested in the multiple potentials of identity, and how they give the body a specific quality.

With Froufrou, my new project, I would like to deepen my work on identity by exploring other perspectives. In particular, that of the identity of an individual in a group (their codification, in a strictly social relationship or in a ritualistic mise-en-scene) and, almost as a counterpoint, those of fragmented identities influenced by a group or ceremony.

My intuition led me to undertake a research residence in Haiti. While there I was able to have a closer look at Haitian voodoo rituals, which according to me, deal in their own way with these identity questions. A voodoo ceremony stages the invisible world by giving it physical presence: the Iwas (spirits, divine and colorful characters, with very strong symbolical identities) descend to the world of the living to momentarily possess and dialogue with the humans. During a voodoo ceremony a body can by traversed by several Iwas, or identities.

The power of a voodoo ritual also comes from the community, and thus joins my desire to work in a group and to create my first group piece for four performers. The première will be at the ADC theatre in Geneva on the 20th of November, 2013.

Collaboration between a choreographer and a writer can lead to the emergence of a large number of combinations. If sometimes the choreographer creates his dance around the work of an author, the writer can also choose dance as the subject of his text.
