C’EST ICI QUE LE JOUR SE LEVE
C’est ici que le jour se lève (literally, « day breaks right here »), is derived from a private text written by Sam Touzani and Rolland Westreich, merging choreography and text to the score and a compilation of relational sketches about the fragility of amorous relationships. What does it take to keep an amorous relationship going when an immigrant is involved with a blue-eyed Flemish woman ? On this eminently contemporary topic, Isabella Soupart sketches with subtlety the outline of a relationship that falls apart, giving the floor to body expression, circumscribing the extent of gesture and unspoken meanings. A close combat performed nevertheless through the word.
