Loosely based on Gertrude Stein's Tender Buttons, PUSH invites us to reflect on the fragmentation of our lives: here we are, projected side by side, and we have to - supposedly - make sense of it somehow. In French, English and Norwegian, PUSH plays with the music hidden in language and the dance buried in the body, like a moving painting, a narrative kaleidoscopic . And through this fragmented language, we can perhaps catch a glimpse of an escape route towards sensitivity.
PUSH and the company For Want of a Better, have received the support of the National Choreographic Centre in Caen, Normandy,
and of the Théâtre du Champ Exquis, Nationally Conventioned Dramatic Centre for the Arts, Culture and Youth.
A LONG DRESS.
What is the current that makes machinery, that makes it crackle, what is the current that presents a long line and a necessary waist. What is this current.
What is the wind, what is it.
Where is the serene length, it is there and a dark place is not a dark place, only a white and red are black, only a yellow and green are blue, a pink is scarlet, a bow is every color. A line distinguishes it. A line just distinguishes it.
Au milieu d'un petit lieu quasi nu
il y a une jolie chose à dire que
le poignet mène. Le poignet mène.
