Dame de Pic/Cie Karine Ponties

For the past twenty years, I’ve regularly had to abandon material emerged in the devising process, when, through guided improvisations, I push the performers to go beyond the limits of their bodies’ language. With FOVEA, a solo with Ares D’Angelo, the goal is to explore some gems emerged during our rehearsals for “Luciola” (2013) and “Le sourire des égarés” (2018). Dancer that I perceive as a “contradictory Buddha”, I’ve seen Ares evolve, break barriers, and I feel an incredible energy in him that needs to be seized now. After a first rehearsal period in Brussels, that culminated in a showing at MIMESIS in Paris in December 2017, this residency will be an opportunity to finish creating this piece.
