Tutuguri

SPRING

What is left of a body reduced to its own vibration? This ventriloquist dancer’s solo echoes a palimpsest of stories and beings, allowing us to “hear” dance. 

Tutuguri is inspired by Antonin Artaud’s poem, “Tutuguri – The Rite of the Black Sun,” written shortly before Artaud’s death and dedicated to the Mexican peyote ritual. The performance explores the dissincronicity between micro-movements and the sounds that escape or surrender to gesture, in a perpetual conflict of opposites. The dancer’s body is inhabited by whispers, animal growls, children’s noises, alien sounds, conversations and spasms, transporting us to a world to be discovered.

“A welcoming refuge, a crowd of voices, a number of beings, identities and stories. A being that has swallowed worlds.” Flora Détraz
