After presenting Brain Storm at Danse-Cité in 2001, Sarah Bild is back with Plus Vrai. Three tall and slender performers – all of whom played an integral part in the creation – play with space and time, as their bodies vibrate outward, leaving a trace in the ensuing silence. Ears attuned to this echo, the choreographer explores the implosion and explosion of various gestural phrases. The movement – the raw material to harness and unleash – then takes the form of a range of formal studies that, together, make up a fossilized fresco of sorts, sinuous and angular, without beginning or end. Then, interrupting and humanizing these studies in black and white, short and colourful miniatures sketch fleeting portraits of these three beings who share the scope of an elastic life. Thus framed, each dancer is revealed amid this to and fro between tonalities by turns abstract and theatrical. The Traces-Chorégraphes series makes way for this show by Sarah Bild, a mature choreographer whose artistic process and approach are constantly being renewed as part of a search for meaning.

Everything comes in the form of flashes, woven together with sighs. Thank you for this fragile and compact little gem, delivered with great candour.
