Sonore Dés_accord

Benjamin Hatcher

December 2019, 5. 6. 7 + 10. 11. 12. 13. 14 – 8 PM

Molded by a rich career as a performer and by his choreographic explorations in several hybrid works, Benjamin Hatcher has found a true ally in contemporary tap. Preoccupied by the precariousness of human and social relations and by the fragility of the ephemeral body, SONORE DÉS_ACCORD explores how sound becomes the engine of intimate communication, propelling 7 performers toward a renewed humanism.

The tap used in SONORE DÉS_ACCORD is not gratuitous, nor does it seek to impress with its virtuosity, but serves rather as a conduit for exchange, generating a meeting ground.  Benjamin’s powerful movement vocabulary emerges out of the body’s rhythmic steps to create a unique and emotive contemporary signature, a rallying cry...
