OUI DANSE/Brice Mousset : WORK!
This event is over
World premiere OUI DANSE with special guest artist Christine Dakin:
A challenge to the body, a dare to the imagination, a reconnection with humanity. OUI DANSE in French, means “yes dance”. “YES” for positivity, OUI / “WE” for universality.
Artistic director/choreographer Brice Mousset explores the OUI DANSE award- winning first work Travailler in an hour long re-envisioning: WORK!
Mousset draws on his education in human/biological sciences and the testimonies of burned out players in the business world to portray work conditions driven by ‘survival of the fittest’ mentality. As success infiltrates and pollutes, WORK! shows the loss of humanity with grotesque elegance, bold movement and a theatrical sensibility. WORK! follows its characters journey through the circus of the business world’s competitions, compulsions, masquerades and the desperation to escape. Combining irony, exaggeration and raw emotion, the choreography creates a world of reckless movement, technical bravura and the deceptive simplicity of pedestrian movement.
