Blast! is based on my observations of how humans express themselves. If my previous creation fantasia invoked sensations and movements linked to my own intimate memory, this new solo Blast! is a study, panorama, or re-appropriation of bodies, focusing on the painful, suffering, strange, explosive, and violent body. For some time now, I have felt the need to respond to violence by embodying and transforming it in my work. Not necessarily my own violence, but the violence that surrounds us, traverses the history of humanity, haunts us with imagery and stories, the violence of our imagination or our nightmares. In parallel to a study on expressivity, two intuitive concepts are at the heart of this new project: one is musical and the other spatial. These concepts have a meditative or calming aspect and serve as a juxtaposition to the intensity of the movement, or maybe even an antidote. Together, they both could either contain the energy or release it.
