|Choreographer||Since the creation of Compagnie 7273 (2003), Laurence Yadi and Nicolas Cantillon have developed a dance style that invites the body to continuously and endlessly unravel. Their research is inspired by the specific Arabic music system of Maqâm. Each maqâm describes a "tonal-spatial factor" or a set of musical notes and the relationship between them.It allows the musician to play in-between the notes and gives him the opportunity to express himself.|
|Company||« Tarab » expresses the groove of the Middle East in Arabic. It is obtained through the execution of the Maqam, a musical system bound to the Muslim religion, known from China to the Maghreb. Each individual country or region has a unique manner to play the Maqam.Each maqam describes "tonal-spatial factor" or set of musical notes and the relationships between them. It allows the musician to play in-between the notes and gives him the opportunity to express himself. To find an original way of playing the Maqam requests both rigor and imagination.The transfer of this technique to the body is at the origin of Laurence Yadi and Nicolas Cantillon’s choreographic research since 2003. It is what they call the Multi styles FuittFuitt.|
|Performance||A gigantic spinal column blows like grass in the wind, fanning the dancers across the stage. We gaze upon the heart of Tarab, this ductile calligraphy, alive and spreading in the background, now unfolding into two continuous, rhythmic lines of lingering, magnetic agitation.
The specific aura of this movement is probably due to the permanent overtaking of opposite forces which are acting in the body; between unity (torso, pelvis, head and wrist) and segmentation (isolation of arms and legs); as if by twisting the wrist, the tensions become absorbed in a flow to better regenerate and rejuvenate it.
