birth of an inimitable hybrid solo discourse
coming together of dance and talk ‘conférence-dansée’ takes the audience to the
very center of the hybrid choreographic creation. It unveils the meandering
experiences and contemplations of a dancer – researcher in search of a unique
discourse emanating from two different schools – Contemporary Dance and
Bharatnatyam. This ‘conference dansée’ takes the spectator into the
Choreographer, Céline Pradeu-Kanagasabai’s creative laboratory, offering
glimpses, along the way, of costumes and sets, sounds and music and presenting
choreographic insights that punctuate the creation.
Céline Pradeu-Kanagasabai about her dance
During my first choreographic work, CPK-30 ans, I
laid down the foundations of a choreographic expression on the theme of
Identity. Listening all the time to my
inner voice, I let myself dance sometimes influenced by the French and at other
times by Indian dances.
With the solo hybrid, I continue my contemplation.
Here, I concentrate on the meeting between the two dance forms. I create a
dance weaving together my two main influences. This style becomes the language
of a creature in search of experience who, during a stormy introspection,
brings to the fore not just various facets of influences, lying dormant in her:
French and Indian cultures, but also her passionate relationship with music,
her sentiments of tortuous love, her womanhood, the experience of child
bearing. Abandoning herself to the complexities of her personality, she follows a trajectory to arrive at a
dance that is sincerely personal.
