Golden Mask 2017 - Best contemporary dance piece


REVOLT / TENDERNESS / COMPASSION / DUPLICITY / DAZZLING / RESISTANCE / SENSITIVE NERVES / ABANDONMENT

Every Direction is North invites bodies thrown into the world, who engage in captures of energy on speed, trajectories, elemental forces and exterior forces. Bodies whose sole impetus are exemplary ways to get out of themselves and rush headlong into the world.They bind with things and the world, engaging in their very functioning. They accompany the course of events so as not to be outdone, not to endure. Unknown bodies that hold and defend their place with dignity, modestly but with obstinacy.


VIOLENT TRAJECTORIES / EXCESSIVE DEVIATIONS / DAZZLING / SHARP STOPS / GRAPHIC SPACE

On the day when disoriented, having lost our bearings, our traces having been erased, we seek our route, when meaning itself is lost, we wander on the curved line of the horizon, in the middle of winter, in an endless landscape, with nothing to distinguish the earth from the sky; we find ourselves back in the same place, arriving via different routes, from all origins, following our innate instinct as an obvious fact.
