"Guerre" (The War of the Line and of Colour) – Gulf Premiere


Samuel Mathieu started out dancing with Régine Chopinot and Jean-Claude Gallotta. In recent years he has choreographed his own works, imbued with energy, bodies expressing drama through dance, often with great agility. It is therefore no surprise to see an interest in the circus and its highly trained, virtuoso performers. For this piece, he drew inspiration from the skills of Yves Klein, an artist with a black belt in judo, whose art was influenced by the sport and who once wrote a synopsis for a ballet. The choreographer has enlisted Jonas Leclere from Brussels, a circus artist who specialises in aerial strap acrobatics, to perform alongside a dancer, Fabienne Donnio. La Guerre (de la ligne et de la couleur) unfolds metaphorically within a three-dimensional, weightless space as the straps allow the bodies to be suspended, free from the constraints of the ground. “The line is jealous of the colour”, Klein said. So let’s look forward to this peaceful confrontation between a highly agile dancer, Donnio, and the young circus artist, Leclere.
