CATA’STROPHES (International Movement)
In the courtyard in front of the entrance to the Red Cross Museum, 18 dancers mixed in among the statues of the Petrified to enact a series of choreographed disasters: falling down, recovering, falling again. Once in a while they go back to being as rigid as the statues, and then return to nonstop movement: running, breaking up, rescuing, fighting, helping each other. The dancers’ sounds, breathing, and voices are amplified. Strobe lights multiply the chaos as they mingle dramatically with the natural lighting.
