Following his last choreographic creation RUPTURES, about questioning the movements of humans on earth in the context of the Anthropocene and the climate change, Bouziane Bouteldja, choreografer of the company DANS6T, extends the experience in calling in, in a play with four dancers, different stories giving an overview of the history of migrations and of the big explorers.
Taking, as a starting point, gumboot, pantsula, gnawa and traditional dances, Bouziane Bouteldja explores bodies in perpetual movements, ancient rituals and dances of better days. In stageplay using natural elements and materials such as water, soil and sand, he works with dances connected to the ground, creating their own rhythm and dynamic of moving and offering the possibility of a better place.
RITUAL DA VIDA, refers to the History of Sapiens, questioning the history of migrations and the big movements of exploration of the world. It creates a connection between yesterday and today, exploring the motivations of this movements and interrogating our perception of the Other one.
The ritual establishes here, like a bridge, a junction between socially separated people, in connecting them, a symbolic and organic way. It also evokes the cycles of life and therefore, a kind of universality.
