For this new creation, Luigi Dallapiccola's Songs of Prison seemed ideal to me because of a strong expressiveness and great lyricism. They appeared to me as a resonant landscape from where emerge a complaint and meditation on the human condition. The movement and the inner song will be revealed by a male ensemble. The space interests me in a scenography of confinement and spreads out docile or resistant bodies. Moving walls dictate their commands to the dancers and demonstrate the skills of each one and the group to react. A story of spaces and a story of power. I take over the resonant landscape in order to make echoing stories of jailed male bodies.
