A performance for ten pre-professional dancers
HELIOTROPE is a performance for ten young students on their way to becoming professional dancers. The performance deals with commitment. The choreographic score comprises the choice of a resolutely frontal space, a physically engaged dance following a single and continuous rhythmic pulse, and simple graphic motifs. The dancers with wide-ranging backgrounds come together in a joyous and engaged battle, and renew the meaning of this word, using their bodies, their experience and the spirit of their generation.
