LITERATURE AND DRAMA
Incarnating the verb
Dancers, like most of all artists, are always pushing the limits. The limits of their own body, to start with, then they are crossing the frontiers of all arts, music and theatre of course, but also plastic arts, literature, etc.
This page presents examples of how artists are inspired by the “verb” (in poetry, prose, lyrics … even philosophy) extract its spiritual essence and how they try to incarnate it through dance.
The work of Marie Perruchet
Marie Perruchet CID Member is dancer, teacher and choreographer generally inspired by pictorial or literary themes, particularly by the encounter between arts and thinking.
Her piece “Nourritures”(food) was inspired by André Gide’s “Nourritures Terrestres”(earthly food). The choreographic space was therefore a place of meditation in movement concerning desire and transcendence.
Her new piece “Étrange Tableau”(strange painting) is inspired by a founding text of our way of perceiving the world “Plato’s Cave”.
Through the danced gesture, the piece offers the public the opportunity to enter in contact with art through an aesthetic and spiritual emotional path.
