TRACE {1906}

Hervé Penhoat

"The future of dance lies in its past - a dance that was and will remain eternal" (Isadora Duncan) Physical memory, from 1906. The dancer's body remembers this period, shifting the landscape in a sphere of the past. With this digital mutation on video, driven by the grace of choreographic movements, we come back down from the mountain (the one from Paul Cezanne who just died), to reappear through the light of Emmanuel Levinas (who is new born) when he wrote in 1979 that "Light is that by which something is other than me, but already as it came out of me". From the body of the dancer, transparent in filigree, zones of shadows, memory of the past, while the gesture aims to this contemporary light.
