The new show by Souhail Marchiche and Mehdi Meghari, entitled Le Grand Bal is currently in progress.
“In Le Grand Bal, the authors-choreographers present their questions about today’s society and the emancipation of bodies.
At the dawn of a new post-pandemic era, called the Aftermath, full of hope and momentum towards a rebirth, bodies, and minds are more than ever immobile, under pressure, and isolated. Social tension is at its highest: between the climate crisis, overconsumption, and threatening wars, constrained bodies are on the verge of implosion. Lifestyles and work patterns lock souls and bodies into a passive monotony, making us forget that vital need for movement and human contact.”
See you on September 20, 21, and 22, 2023 at the Radiant-Bellevue (69), for the piece’s premiere during the 20th Biennale de la Danse of Lyon, September 09 to 30, 2023!
