‘La boîte à musique’ 2009
5’, Couleur, Son
The intention of this piece is to confront two worlds : that of plenty, of the idyllic that is represented by this dancer face to that of a more realistic universe where children have no more dreams. There is a gap between the feeric image and certain situations of social misery, as that of children that are victims of wars. These situations are emitted by a soundtrack.The ballerina turns around relentlessly; the blue light suggests the glass ball and the blue colour is a reference to Degas` paintings. The dancer keeps completely vertical as a sort of aerial dance. She expresses balance, refinement, simetry of movements in a kind of mechanical dance.
