He dances as he whistles and whistles as he dances. He appears and disappears into the obsidian darkness as if by magic. Here he is, alone on the stage, half naked, guided by his impulses, his tropisms and his states of half-slumber. He is in that in-between place where he can imagine a hymn to dance comprising continuous gestures and breaths, scholarly references and popular images. Melodic reminiscences too, either created by him or drawn from a broad repertoire: Vivaldi, Bach, Mozart, soundtracks of Ennio Morricone westerns, etc. Nobody is left behind in this immense poetic, musical, choreographic daydream, danced to the rhythm of its own shimmering modulations. More than a performance on the state of the resting or confined body, SOMNOLE is a highly exacting and exquisitely funny performance: a sublimation of the dancing body and of thought in motion.
