Tragédie, new edit

Olivier Dubois

Paris

 

Ten years after it was first performed, the choreographic poem Olivier Dubois wrote for eighteen dancers propels us with the same force into a “sensation of the world”. A dizzying, chaotic experience. Against a background of throbbing percussion, the grand cycle of life plays out in ceaseless ebb and flow, emerging and disappearing over and over again.

Large group performances Society-building

The performers of Tragédie show that they belong to the human community, thumping the ground, walking, standing, facing one another, sliding, kneeling, appearing and disappearing, holding one another to avoid falling over… and expressing our shared destiny. When it was first performed at the Avignon Festival in 2012 it was received like a choreographic punch in the face, instantly becoming Olivier Dubois’ statement piece and a monument of contemporary dance that has been performed many times since. Obsessive, magnetic, even hypnotic, it brings together raw earthbound power and human fragility, sweat and beauty, intoxication and tumult. Nudity becomes secondary: only their intoxicating presence and the weight of their bodies remain. They invite us to join the swirling dance without false modesty and without fakery, until we too enter a frenetic trance. Fearless of the world’s commotion, they tell us who we are.
