Le Grand Bal spreads a mysterious choreographic fever that makes 10 urban dancers pulsate. A way of setting in motion again bodies brought to a standstill by the pandemic and contemporary crises.
People were hoping for change and fresh impetus, but the post-Covid world has brought nothing new. Even worse, inequality has deepened and minds are increasingly under pressure, grappling with a crisis of multiple dimensions: economic, political, social and ecological. When immobility and isolation permeate bodies, how can they can be set in motion again? Compagnie Dyptik, which is keen to treat our era’s problems on stage, attempts to answer this question through a piece of narrative dance. From shadows to light, 10 dancers with constrained bodies seem afflicted by a mysterious illness – a choreographic fever strangely reminiscent of the dancing epidemics in centuries past. Author-choreographer duo Souhail Marchiche and Mehdi Meghari, who come from the hip hop scene and carry within them the fury of its battles, invite bodies to stage a revolt. Sometimes, to break free, they have no choice but to start dancing.
