DANCE: CCN2-CENTRE CHORÉOGRAPHIQUE NATIONAL DE GRENOBLE, FRANCE
7.30 PM | Sunday * February 05 | Ranga Shankara Theatre
TORDRE (WROUGHT) is presented by CCN2 – Centre chorégraphique national de Grenoble, choreographed by Rachid Ouramdane.
Two of Ouramdane’s longtime collaborators—Lora Juodkaite and Annie Hanauer— perform lonely solos in a haunting duet. Intensely physical performances foreground the specificity of each woman’s body as she paints a raw, captivating self-portrait. Compelling in its repetition, Ouramdane’s choreography pushes the performers to find the gesture that makes them who they are.
According to the choreographer, the piece comprises of two portraits that are juxtaposed- two solos rather than a duo- with maybe a moment of transition.
