Patrick Faurot/Pasullero Dance Theater:
I shall soon be quite dead at last in spite of all
Concept: Patrick Faurot | Performance: Patrick Faurot, David Necchi, Luc Reboullet
In relation to the novel „Malone Dies“ by Samuel Beckett, „I shall soon be quite dead at last in spite of all“ is a choreography of compulsive actions and words, of inertia, and of exhaustion. Thought and action being uncorrelated, the mind and the body move at different speeds, or rather in alternate directions, or rather the body is at rest and the mind is in motion. Or the body is at rest in space but in constant internal motion while the mind gawks at the body. The essential shape is the circle, or perhaps the line; both reduce to a point. The essential image is a man lying on his deathbed via a man riding a bicycle. If I had the use of my body, I would throw it out of the window.
Patrick Faurot is an American choreographer, dancer, and musician. Faurot studied matheÂmatics and dance at Columbia University in New York City and moved to Berlin in 2007 where he worked extensively for two years at the Karmanoia-Gaya Theater in Neukölln diÂrecting experimental and site-specific theater. In 2010, Faurot traveled to Buenos Aires for a year-long residency at the Querida Elena Teatro. In Buenos Aires, Faurot choreographed and directed „köpfmaschine”, his first work in dance-theater based on Oscar Wilde's one-act play, „Salome”. Upon returning to Berlin in 2011, Faurot formed his company Pasullero Dance Theater and began a two-year cycle entitled „Studies for Prophet Machine” that exÂplores the image of John the Baptist and the aesthetics precipitated by „köfpmaschine”. „I shall soon be quite dead at last in spite of all” marks both a synthesis of these studies and a transition towards a new cycle of work dealing with human behavior and the forces that shape our daily actions.
Luc Reboullet studied theater, circus, mime and dance, working the fields of physical theaÂter, activist political theater and dance-theater for several Paris-based companies, touring all around France. He now lives and works in Berlin, focusing on a personal movement investigaÂtion through the practice of contemporary dance. Beside working with the choreographer VinÂcent Bozek, he has created two solos: „from A to B to A to” and „small-room”. He is dedicated to develop a precise physicality in performance situations, addressing questions of movement as meaning, deep energy and extreme physicality.
