“... one of the most important choreographers in France…”” Claudia La Rocco, The New York Times
- ≈ 1 hour and 10 minutes · No intermission
Seminal French choreographer Maguy Marin’s Salves was acclaimed as a masterpiece after its premiere in 2010. This haunting work, a potent mix of dance and theatre, brings the power of resistance to the stage and features a soundscape by Denis Mariotte, seven dancers and four vintage tape recorders. Salves is “a work of calculated chaos, a manifesto, a hail of gunfire in which images shatter and fury overcomes despair.” Like a painting, an epic poem, Salves is a salvo of images, flashes from the darkness “like a series of uppercuts which raise the spectre of war and hatred, and show us the folly and absurdity of the world.”
The company receives for this tour the financial support of : Institut Français in Paris, The City of Toulouse, The Cultural Services of the French Embassy in the United States and The Cultural Services of the French Embassy in Mexico (IFAL).
