Waiting

"My body is waiting for something… That is all there is to it. My  subject is Onan, the sensual Biblical character who gave his name to  onanism. The Bible and sensuality… I find mixtures like this  stimulating. Onan is absolute, total pleasure in terrifying solitude.

Behind this quest for solitary ecstasy lies the fear of nothingness,  that point where life and death come face to face. Sometimes that vacuum  fills my body like a desire for death.

DESIRE… There is a desire that vibrates inside me, and for many years  I have been in search of that precise point where the trembling lies…  It is perhaps this wave of vibration that is the source of my  dancing."

Ikeda, Carlotta

Sanae Ikeda was born in Fukui, a village on the Japanese Sea: « I used to walk in the country, and dizzy with all the smells of the plants, with all the nuances in the atmosphere, I danced » (...)

The kind of dance you learn came later, in Tokyo. « Rice sprout » (Sanae) was 19 when she first went through the door of a « dance course ». But at that time, the Butô, that « dance of darkness » was born in Japan. Tatsumi Hijikata had invented it, that angel and devil who was to proclaim in 1968 the revolt of the flesh. Like other young people in her generation, Carlotta threw her body into battle. This life-long involvement can by no means be regarded as naiveorinnocent. (...)

Whoever has seen Carlotta Ikeda dancing knows to what point she masters that art of metamorphosis, how she can make it at the same time obvious and invisible, how she can extend the time of the vision in a « slowness of movement allowing all possible interpretations » (Paul Claudel). The metamorphosis at stake here is not that of an histrion, one who knows how to make a caricature out of expressive imitations. In Carlotta Ikeda, this is a change of inner state, involving the whole body (...) 

Ariadone, the company that Carlotta Ikeda founded in 1974, refers to that Ariane s thread, that follows Carlotta Ikeda from one show to the next (...)

Les racines de la diversité en danse contemporaine

Exposition virtuelle

La danse contemporaine désigne des courants artistiques succédant à la danse moderne. Mais, il est difficile de cerner précisément cette expression, tant elle inclus différentes pratiques et esthétiques. Aujourd’hui, le mot « contemporain » intègre des danses actuelles, urbaines, théâtrales, de différentes origines géographiques ou «culturelles». Pour comprendre et illustrer la notion de diversité dans la danse contemporaine, nous utiliserons divers créations de la collection du Centre chorégraphique ou de la Compagnie James Carlès Danse &Co, qui a mis cette idée au cœur de ses préoccupations.
