FRACTALS OF YOU

"...a work in which the choreography and video are intrinsically tied together and operate as two sides of the same coin... one of the only pieces that I've seen master this technology-dance fusion."  Rebecca Galloway, Backtrack

 

This new work, characterized by its flow, physicality and precision, explores the evolution of consciousness and celebrates the inward search for knowledge as opposed to the material and external.  This duo charms audiences with its innovative, organic movement in a fusion of street dance and contemporary dance during his visit to Danse Danse 2014 season. With extreme fluidity that is in perfect symbiosis with the soundscape, Emmanuelle Lê Phan and Elon Höglund here pursue even further their exploration of harmony with the moving images of the painter Gene Pendon. Mandalas and other symbolic imagery engulf the space, bathing the bodies of the dancers with brushstrokes. In this dreamscape, opposites assert their presence the better to merge together: shadow and light, angles and curves, masculine and feminine, speed and stillness. A visual phantasmagoria, a bewitchingly beautiful journey within that opens up the imagination and quickens the senses.
