HISTOIRES VRAIES

A contemporary dance show

Choreographed by Cécile Loyer

Thursday, 6th July 2017, 7pm

ML Bhartia Auditorium, Alliance Française de Delhi

Free Entry | Open to all

In this contemporary dance project, the French artist Cécile Loyer weaves together the stories and the histories of dance.

Histoires Vraies” is, first and foremost, an enquiry into the origins of movement and how movements are passed on. Having been intro­duced to bharathanatyam, Cécile Loyer creates a mix contrasting two different traditions and their use of the body.

On the stage, 2 Indian dancers and 2 European dancers turn themselves into witnesses and nar­rators of their own stories. This bizarre, often funny, chaos of gestures narrates our ‘collective history’ and tries to capture the essence of what dance is and to see whether movements, gestures and signs can help us discover other versions of history – less tangible but more moving!
