Danceoke | Cie Divergences (english)


(Installation 2015)


Danceoke : leisure activity? contemporary installation? entertainment? performance? ball? Saturday Night Fever? Danceoke, an invented term that combines dance and karaoke, is all of these things put together. The participant-performers are invited to directly reproduce movements from the video clips judiciously selected and projected in front of them. Everything is permitted; participants can push their bodies and test their inhibitions in all manner of techniques and improvisation. The only rule is to watch, follow and dance. In this ceremonial staging, created automatically by the participants, one can see, little by little, the social setting transform itself into a physical performance of instantaneous creation. Danceoke: where Lady Gaga can lead us to dancing with William Forsythe.

Installation occurs parallel to the mediation event scheduled.
