If being romantic means opening a space to hope, to love; believing in the unbelievable; getting carried away with
naïve impulsions and thinking that as yet unexplored imaginary zones exist within us… then I’m a perfect romantic.
I also take a distanced and ironic view on this word, while at the same time being completely filled with it.
In 1982 I had created ‘Nuit Blanche’, a solo based on romanticism. Revisiting this theme more than 20 years later
was stimulating for me. I wanted to know how I was gong to perceive it today; how to stage different types of bodies, young or more mature; what my musical choices would be, or even which romantic attitudes were still resonating
in me. Although there are several dancers on stage in this piece, its construction underlines the notion of solitude,
the emotional state which I was already developing in my solo. In a scenography reminiscent of a portrait gallery,
a large room of memories, each dancer selects their attire, moves the set decorations and chooses their own music
so that they are conspicuous on the stage and in play. It’s a game of seduction. I’d like the spectator to fall in love;
to become attached to a body, to a few notes or a colour. I’d like them to fall in love with the passing time…
