LI YE

PERFORMANCE : SCENE / DEAMBULATION

LI YE draws an anatomy of human relationships, through the hypnotic dance of Alexia Traore and Chrysogone Diangouaya. Their gestures in resonance weave an intimate and universal narrative, at the confluence lap dancing and improvisation. Their dialogue takes place through symbolic objects, memories and stakes: a rope, masks, cleats… LI YE explores the singular relationship that each of sustains us to others and to the world. Across the interactions of the bodies, the dance echoes the parallelisms and frictions between the individual and the collective.

Today the relational experience is marked by the consequences of the pandemic which imposed strong limitations of physical contact in the private and professional sphere. In a world where distance practices are developing, where technology blurs the lines between reality and virtual world, the body seeks its place, the slowness and the organic rhythm which are essential to it.

The performance declines the notion of link in its multiplicity, its ambiguity: the link is the one that protects or imprisons, he who blinds or enlightens, the one who reassures, fulfills or confines. to what extent is on the initiative of ways of relating to others that we entertain, how do we set the rules and the limits? Inside the link are at work the springs from the unconscious patterns that the human passes often its existence to relive, and the construction complex of its affiliations.

Cultural, family, love, geographical link… what is the vital cycle of the link, how does it come to be tied, strengthen, relax, then disappear? Through the spatialization of objects-links with different textures and materials, the artists inscribe their dialogue between empty spaces, tensions, balances, and question the extent of this gap posed between the bodies.
