what if we played at being someone else
and if we explored ourselves in our reflections
and if we looked at each other eye to eye
A thousand times we can change,
a thousand things we can dance,
a thousand facets we can look at.
” MIROIЯ ” it is the story of two beings who seek to know each other. Beautiful in their reflection, they are however invaded by the fear of the other and of themselves, the fear of not being right.
«MIROII AM » is a reflection on the gaze that we carry in connection with that of the other. The starting point is from myth of Narcissus evoking the discovery of one's own reflection and the sensations it arouses.
In this choreographic piece it is a question of approaching the image as a potential vector of bond or on the contrary as revealing a lack of self-esteem.
Immensely present in our society, is the act of admiring oneself really a proof of narcissism or does it paradoxically reveal a lack of self-esteem? ? This choreographic piece thus invites wondering about changes in self-perception that evolve with the intimate history of each. The figures that we discover plunge into the past of the other, including, sensing that they may have the same fears, the same wounds. Is it my gaze that paralyzes me, that of the other? Is this distorting mirror really?
The scenography, over there multitude of moving mirrors, with which the choreography is created, mark this moment of loss of uniqueness of self, this awareness of being both the one who is in the reflection and the one who looks.
We will dive into their memories, in their childhood, to better understand them and recognize themselves in them. They will let us glimpse what is hidden behind their appearances to offer a re-invented dance.
