DANCE OF BODIES & DANCE OF WORDS (2020)

Lecture-performance at the Plessis Theater, in la Riche (37520), this winter (to be confirmed)

(The march session had been cancelled beacause of the SARS-CoV-2 crisis)

A performance at the Château of Plessis, in la RICHE, based on the Poets’ Spring Festival, which this year has courage as its theme. A thousand definitions of this word would not be enough to exhaust all its nuances. So we came up with the idea of interrupting the poem, or the text, so that the dance could carry the words that will not be pronounced. And then, the dance will stop and the words will come back…

Poets, writers who are imprisoned or prevented from publishing will be our companions, our scouts. Not to give in to what manipulates us in life, even at the price of dying. May words and bodies bear witness to this…

Textes by A. AKMATOVA, by S. DEMIRTAS, by N. HIKMET, by D.HARMS, by R.LUXEMBURG.

Deletion of texts, mutilated texts are tools of censorship. The cuts that we will impose in the texts, will make the dance surge! Censorship does not spare the body, but the body can try to defeat it.”

Roland Lebret
