Holding up a mirror to the ancient myths that have fed the history of art, Adi Boutrous invokes, through body and movement, the ethical dilemmas that permeate them and sensitively offers them for sharing.
The myths handed down to us from ancient times have not travelled through history by accident: if they continue to speak to us from antiquity, it is because they address universal dilemmas that have never ceased to perturb our lives. Inspired by the works of Renaissance and Baroque painters, who first initiated a return to biblical and Greek writings, Adi Boutrous reconnects with a past where beauty and justness were synonyms. In a setting of fabric that adorns both the stage and their bodies, five dancers performing moments of devotion and intimate body encounters echos the presence of the grand narratives from the past in our time and evoke thought about the contemporary passage towards the disappearance of deep-rooted aesthetic principles, and our cultural future in their absence. In Reflections, the choreographer holds up a mirror to the history of art in order to reflect on the moral dimension of bodies and to continue his search for aesthetics that chime with ethics.
