Tschägg

Tschägg (to be pronounced Tchac) stages a quest for one's 'interior wilderness' through dance. In dialogue with the tradition of Tschäggättä, in the swiss mountains, at the heart of Europe, Lucie Eidenbenz, Cosima Grand and Hélène Rocheteau re-invent their own exoticism : an exoticism from the inside, where the relationships with the "strange" or "stranger" are reversed, interchanged. The "wildering dance" reveals itself no longer as an anthropological study, but rather like a contemporary practice emerging from a necessity. Do we need to hide, become monstrous to feel ourselves in a policed society? Who's the foreigner? The one behind which we hide, the one we reject, or the one that we are, first of all, to ourselves? Through the traditions of Oberwallis, Africa, Bulgaria, or certain contemporary clothing fashions, we can witness the signs of a performance of identity, of an inversion of values - and profound contradictions.
