Based on Dans la solitude des champs de coton by Bernard-Marie Koltès
If you were to flee, I would follow you; if you were to fall under my blows, I would stay by your side for your awakening; and if you decided not to wake up, I would stay by your side, in your sleep, in your unconsciousness, beyond. Yet I do not wish to fight you.
Dans la solitude des champs de coton, Bernard-Marie Koltès
With this choreographic duet, freely inspired by the play Dans la solitude des champs de coton by Bernard-Marie Koltès, writing is confronted with dance, exploring the different shifts from word to gesture, from movement to verb. The piece retraces the nocturnal encounter between two characters, who, in an ambiguous power struggle, will verbally confront each other until the words are exhausted, until the silence that precedes the fight becomes inevitable. It thus reveals a moving male duality, not solidified, which puts to the test in the relation to the other the springs of our humanity. A physical reading of the text between adversity and brotherhood.
