Room With A View is the not entirely chance encounter between electronic-music maestro RONE and the collective (LA)HORDE, which heads the Ballet National de Marseille and featured in the last Lyon Dance Biennale.
Together, they explore how we relate physically to groups and the environment. After several discussions, the topic quickly seemed self-evident, given what matters to them today: awakening consciences as we face the overwhelming prospect of collapse. Fifteen dancers and RONE will perform in a marble quarry, a museum-like white cube, where anything can happen – be it collapse or a call to civilisation, in a nod to the Pink Floyd documentary Live at Pompeii. But there is an even stronger reference to the writings of science-fiction author Alain Damasio and to Greta Thunberg, with the desire to conduct a ‘”war of imaginary realms”. The dancers take inspiration from this physical embodiment of fears, in committed and engaging movements, unleashing a legitimate anger on stage. Sensitive and bodily approaches blend with RONE’s soul-stirringly sentimental and quasi-cinematographic music.
From 9 June, a health pass (negative test less than 48 hours old, vaccination certificate, or certificate of immunity) will be mandatory to access the shows scheduled at the Nuits de Fourvière.
This health pass will be required at the entrance of the festival, either on paper or digitally via the TousAntiCovid application. However, the details of this health pass will be specified by the government in the next few days.
