5 modul-dance artists performing in Toulouse

A new edition of the Festival International CDC-Des Migrations will take place in Toulouse very soon. From the 2nd to the 19th April, 17 artists will present their works at one of the 8 venues participating. Its interesting artistic program includes four shows developed under the umbrella of the modul-dance project.

Hooman Sharifi will present Then love was found and set the World on fire. The piece derives its visual expression from the videos posted on the Internet which documented the popular revolts ocurred in Iran in 2009. Magali Milian and Romuald Luydlin will premiere Spekies, an approach to shape and premonition that they lead in the company of a guitar-player and the author of modern detective stories, Caryl Férey. Pausing is the title of the project developed by Ioannis Mandafounis and May Zarhy. It moves between dance and physical movement, imaginary scenarios and slices of reality creating an intimate spectacle. Eugénie Rebetez and her one-woman show entitled Encore blend song, dance and humour to create a unique language. Rebetez goes against trends and performs in a light-veined and cheeky register.

Sofia Dias & Vítor Roriz, 2012 modul-dance selected artists, will perform a previous work, Fora de qualquer presente, a disturbing blend of precise writing and choreography which builds progressively using onomatopoeic gestures. In their universe, time goes backwards and the body follows this fleeing motion.

A new modul-dance premiere

A new modul-dance creation will open in two days at Mercat de les Flors. Marcos Morau, modul-dance 2011 selected artist and his company La Veronal, want to make Siena a place where the body is the center of the stage, as a container and deposit the same way that man first became the center of the world in Florence on XIV century. The work engages aesthetically with the election peripheral flash surrounding the body carried on the scene. We will see a steady build-up, a clearly, gradual transformation of bodies on stage.
