"physical translations & musicality"

Questioning the meaning and the truth of some of the movements executed during his career as a dancer, Martin Harriague responds by implementing a method, constantly reworked, where the challenge is precisely to remain "true" to the meaning of the movements created. Each movement of one dancer is "commanded" by a leading dancer, which changes according to the score. The constraint becomes a kind of musical game to which the performers submit. This puts their ability to react and interact to the test in a space where the body becomes the instrument of the note. No room is left for improvisation, everything is written, and at the same time initiated by the dancers themselves.
