On Poetry, Sport, etc...


On poetry, sport, etc” is a choreographic project created collaboratively by Sophie Guisset, performance maker and Fanny Brouyaux, dancer and choreographer.

Together, they stage an emancipatory journey. Starting from the sensation of an impeded speech, a muffled cry, they create two characters, expressing  their own contradictions. They begin in a sporting and challenging way, an obstacle course where a multitude of incidents and falls might destabilize their determination. The violence of their failure reveals the limits and absurdity of their stubbornness.

Through the skylight of their experience, it is a battle that is fought and seeks its weapons: the intense energy, the state of alert, and the solidarity that is indispensable to provoke any changes.
