From 28 to 29 November 2023

From Tuesday 28 to Wednesday 29 November 2023 at 8 pm.

A pas de deux? Yes, but a unique one. Because it features two men with trained but imperfect bodies, who play with their differences, and with us. It's fun!

Tall and slender, they are both the same height but not the same build. Although they are trained dancers, they do not claim to be virtuosos. Far from the standard, virtual or instagrammed aesthetics, Axel Guérin and Alexander Vantournhout have chosen precisely to show, in this subtly funny duet, the spontaneous and sometimes comical beauty of the "human animal". Gesture after gesture, through a series of contracts and mutual support, they support each other in their search for balance. Touch, rehabilitated, becomes the guiding thread of the performance and the ultimate instrument for achieving harmony. Unlike the pas de deux of the repertoire, even here the solos are developed jointly, in a constant back and forth between the two performers. As for the idea of symmetry, it is declined as much vertically, according to the classical idea of elevation, as on a vertical axis or on a diagonal, creating disconcerting interlocking and unexpected forms... From the front of the stage, where this fraternal joust begins, scenography and light guide the spectator's eye to the vanishing point of the dance floor cut out in a trapezoid, while the percussions orchestrated by Andrea Belfi organically link sound and movement. Between symmetry and dissonance, fusion and parity, a new way of being two.

Alexander Vantournhout
Born in Brussels, Alexander Vantournhout studied contemporary dance at the P.A.R.T.S. school directed by Anne Teresa de Kersmaecker, and followed the curriculum of the École Supérieure des Arts du Cirque (ESAC). Nourished by these two aesthetics, he has been creating pieces since 2014, including the remarkable Aneckxander, at the frontier of several art forms and which, based on constraints, explore the fields of both physical and kinetic possibilities.
