Fabien Prioville Dance Company (FR/GER): NOUS
In the frame of Festival Temps d’Images:
"NOUS" is inspired by the idea of working on "Territory", in relation to the body. The initial point is to treat and think of the body as a territory that is changed through movement. The task is to find new territory for dance and choreography. The exploration of the personal territory is carried to extremes. How far can the dancers go defining and defending their territory and vice versa how far can they go crossing the boarder of the other’s territory.
Following his much acclaimed solo “Jailbreak Mind“, the new work by dancer and choreographer Fabien Prioville is devoted to the topics of territories and frontiers. Together with video artist Naoko Tanaka, among other things known for her collaboration with Düsseldorf choreographer Morgan Nardi, as well as musician Frank Schulte who was already involved in “Jailbreak Mind“, this new play deals with individual, collective and geographical frontiers. Fabien Prioville debates territorial space that surrounds every individual but is also claimed by social groups: Engulfing every body and every human being, oftentimes not really falling into our perception, maybe even triggering war. The techniques of defining and defending territory are techniques of the body: Dancers Paolo Fossa and Moo Kim test each other’s limits, balancing with trespassing and abiding. The choreography, ostensibly playing with the French form of “we“ and, divided into two syllables, the English “no us“, uses a five meter scaffolding as well as the stage floor. Fabien Prioville danced, among others, for LaLaLa Human Steps and the Wuppertal dance theatre of Pina Bausch before starting to develop his own plays in 2006. His solo “Jailbreak Mind“ was invited to the Tanzplattform Deutschland in 2010 and is currently touring well-known festivals internationally.
