Cultural ,  Dance in Saint-Ouen

  • One choreographer for two shows, a majestic, whirling duet with ballroom dance allure breathes new life into lost traditions. A sparkling quintet on pointe (the body rotating around its axis) create a hypnotic evolution.

  • Winner of a Golden Lion for dance at the Venice Biennale, Alessandro Sciarroni is one of the most exciting Italian artists of his generation. He has been invited to Espace 1789 for the first time, in partnership with the Rencontres Chorégraphiques Internationales de Seine-Saint-Denis, to present two short shows on the same evening.

    SAVE THE LAST DANCE FOR ME It was in 2018 that Alessandro Sciarroni discovered the polka chinata - a male seduction dance from the early 1900s - when it was no longer practised in Italy by more than a handful of dancers. With Save the last dance for me, the choreographer breathes new life into this physically demanding, almost acrobatic dance. Set to an electro beat, a male duo link small, almost gliding steps into a twirling embrace and lose themselves in a deeply joyful and intoxicating trance.

    In TURNING_Orlando's version, five admirable performers throw themselves without restraint into a brilliantly technical and voluptuous round. Between tradition and modernity, they explore the practice of classical dance, raised on pointe, using the motifs of classical ballet in a singular way. To the rhythm of an original musical score blending electronics, voice and traditional sounds, the performers draw rotating and geometric shapes, taking us on a suspended journey.
