Ombres du péché (Les)

Ombres du péché (Les)

Les ombres du péché

A stylised bathroom, a man and a woman seem to be taking great pleasure in hurting each other and in replaying over and over scenes of embracing and pushing away in which a razor-blade has an important symbolic position. 


 Embraces, gestures that force the other’s body and bend it under the authority of desire, provide the director with an opportunity to focus on the plastic and raw presence of Pascal Allio, an enigmatic blond with a transparent gaze. The orchestra, which plays an original score by Jean-Claude Wolff, is included in the setting as the motionless and petrified witness of the violent dispute between the two characters.

In the 1970s, artists’ drive towards a new classic had been ongoing for more than a half century and several generations had already formed since the Russian Ballets. As the years went by, everyone defended or defends classical dance as innovative, unique, connected to the other arts and the preoccupations of its time.
