Beschreibung

A large projection screen is mounted against the scrim and a plush white carpet covers the dance area. Originally a group piece, reduced to a solo by lack of funds, this dance is inspired by a “poem book” about money by Christophe Tarkos. A French voice-over gives us excerpts of the text as the English translation appears on the large video screen. “Money is the sublime value”, “Money saves everything”, “Money is all encompassing”. Denault is at ease performing her vocabulary. Brief gesture phrases are mostly frontal, stationary and upright. I am interested by how she plays with timing and size of movement, going from a little hand movement to a full body scoop. However, the work loses tension because of the many long pauses and of her apparent nonchalance. Is this a statement about money? How is the dance related to the text? I crave longer, edgier phrases, and wonder what the group piece was like. (Quelle: http://www.thedancecurrent.com) / jst
