Ah! Oh! - A contemporary Ritual // Llamame Lola

Étape Danse

In residency from August 18th to 29th, 2014

Ah! Oh! - A contemporary Ritual

What is the common point between a wound and a color, a circle and an ellipse, a shell and the hole of a gunshot on a pillow? In “Ah! Oh! – A contemporary ritual” Kát Valastur is relating historical rites with actual social issues, like individuality and virtuality. By her choreographic work, she wants to explore the gesture of touch and feeling of community in contemporary society.

Llamame Lola

In his new project “Llamame Lola”, which is part of his set of work “bi-portrait”, Mickaël Phelippeau meets the Spanish dancer Lola Rubio. This project reflects a portrait with many facets: her interpret career, the fact to be Spanish and to live in Germany, the feeling of strangeness and the choice to raise her three-year-old child alone. Finally, how does it feel to have the same name as a French movie and to have this hair color?
