„We are all born mad. Some remain so.“
Inspired by Samuel Beckett`s quote from the book Waiting for Godot, the Choreographer and Dancer Alexandre Fandard gives a little glimpse of the daily madness hidden in all of us. His dance-solo Some remain so achieves this through his congenial and minimalistic plays with Light. He sets Armand Amars version of Vivaldi`s “Cum Dederit” in contrast to the abrupt and energetic movements of Krump Dance (a dance style from the USA). He combines modern noise – compositions with tender, subtle, almost fragile dance – sequences, in which he puts the focus on particular parts of the body, just to fall back in an almost painful looking fight over the control of his body. Listening to Schubert he oscillates himself to easiness, but the Pursuit against gravity ends with a return to earth. Fandard accomplishes to show us his inner condition and make them comprehensible: the inner conflict, the despair, the loneliness of the modern idividual and the failure in the fight against the slow eruption of Madness.
Comment of the festival team: ten strong and dense minutes – impressive, thrilling and at the same time esthetically very attractive! a little dance pearl !
