5.–7. November

Spilles: Fri 05. Nov Sat 06. Nov Sun 07. Nov

Ballet National de Marseille for the first time in Norway!

At the invitation of the Théâtre de la Ville and the Théâtre du Châtelet, (LA)HORDE presents a program with the Ballet national de Marseille. The performance consists of the work of four different choreographers, all offering a plural and complementary style: Lucinda Childs, Tania Carvalho, Lasseindra Ninja and Oona Doherty - each embodying their own iconic, inclusive and engaged choreography. An inclusive form between expressionist plasticity and the “social bodies” of nowadays in physical theatre, connecting the avant-garde of Postmodern Dance and the French pioneer of Ball culture. Through this plurality of choreographies and of generations between these four artists, (LA)HORDE defines again the horizons of a sweeping dance, passing from extremely structured to extremely fiery.

An encounter between two conceptions of dance. On the one hand, the hype surrounding Oona Doherty - the prodigy of Belfast’s realistic, urban and energetic dance - and Lasseindra Ninja - the queer icon of Voguing dance in France – who, for the first time, creates a piece with a group of dancers. On the other hand, the thoroughness and clarity of Lucinda Childs and Tânia Carvalho who start from overall pictures, hereby sharing a keen sense of line and rhythms.

A program of 75 minutes composed of short pieces (10-20 min) by Lucinda Childs, Tânia Carvalho, Lasseindra Ninja and Oona Doherty, with the dancers of the Ballet national de Marseille.
