Dance “Légende” by Michel Kelemenis


It is a fiction: our planet with no other living beings than the human species. Blowing from inside a cave, a great wind carries the immaterial remains of a forgotten past, incomplete traces.

Four artists in search of inspiration try to reconstitute this lost animal world.

Their successes make you dream when the dance manages not to mimic but to evoke the animal; their clumsiness and mistakes make you laugh. Sometimes yellow. Agile archaeologists, fairground artists, both dancers and acrobats, exhibit the bestiary of their research in a fake world that they revive through the incongruous, the unusual, the burlesque or the unfinished.
A few metallic cubes in a coldness that only the bodies and the light colour; the dance reinvents water, earth and air, the fundamental elements of the unfolding of life. And the beings of an unknown mythology take shape.
The question is put to the youngest: can life on earth do without the diversity of fauna? The show proposes the positive hypothesis of a rescue and invites "to celebrate life as a miracle".
