There are three of them: three bodies, three seatings, three lights. They are waiting for us on stage, ready not to decide, instinctive. Their backs face the onlookers. They move with their arms up in the air, nervous, feet and hips in the ground. Then their bodies melt, lazy, before standing up, ready and alert. Modern witches, they set the pace, shake and bend: a ceremony of rhythm begins. The music takes us along with them, the sound rumbles, bass and percussions strengthen the effort, silences and breaths rest the bodies in a universe inspired by soul music. The silhouettes are revealed under the moonlight of a projector, the necklace lighting decorates the space drawn by a circle of bulbs. Carmen is a freewheeling trio, an impulsive choreography where improvisation and writing are overlapping. A delicate ritual where hip-hop dance flirts with wacking, krump and flamenco. Annabelle Loiseau and Pierre Bolo define their work on the postural, on a muscular, musical and urban dance. Three bodies, three seatings, three lights that form an imperfect circle where freedom of movement, attitudes and choices can be expressed.
