Semâ, the dance of the whirling dervishes, gives the title - and something of a symbol - to the Compagnie Linga's new creation for eight dancers. Katarzyna Gdaniec and Marco Cantalupo work on a cyclic choreography for a flexible and fluid ensemble, and renew with the live electronic music of Mathias Delplanque, accompanied by the percussionist Philippe Foch.
Semâ - Linga
Cosmos - Linga & l'Ombre de la Bête
Since many years we have been exploring group choreography, and the art of creating on stage, with a group of performers, a moving organism capable of forming and breaking down into flexible and fluid formations, which is the sum of its thinking cells, creating a collective consciousness.
A world in which the multiform harmony of the different human figures that compose it, the acceptance of individual differences, their valorisation and visibility contribute to the enrichment of the whole.
Piece for 6 dancers et 4 singers
Compagnie Linga collaborates with the Académie Vocale de Suisse Romande (AVSR) and its singers in an exchange of skills and experiences that will serve as a backdrop to create a common language of expression. Will it be the opportunity to create a new hybrid art, offering the possibility of a new listening, a new perspective?
At the articulation between movement and plastic art, this project questions itself on the multiple barriers that, after a period of relative and perhaps utopian free movement of beings, civilizations are once again erecting everywhere. Walls deconstructs and disarticulates materials and space, to consider other worlds of encounter and exchange between bodies and matter.
flow - Linga & Keda
flow mark the first collaboration between Compagnie Linga and KEDA, the French- Korean duo formed by Mathias Delplanque, electronic musician, and E'Joung Ju, player of geomungo (traditional Korean string instrument). Their duo, formed in 2010, counterpoises the ancestral sonorities of geomungo with textures, rhythms and electronic treatments.
With the hypnotic, warm, dancing and stateless folk music of Keda, specially composed for the piece and performed on stage, we imagine for our dancers a joyful kinaesthetic experience, original and jubilant.
Seven women breathe life and creativity into this project. Ona (Polish word for "she") fathoms the bonding moments shared by these artists and dancers, when personalities merge and transcend.
In TABULA, the rules of the game are constantly changed by the impressive set movements. Here space is keyword. A space that is shared, conquered, and claimed by the eight dancers, who provide a highly-sensitive, contrasting, and powerful interpretation.
Three performers with very distinctive backgrounds will give birth to this project, having chosen the solo format to fully reveal the artist's intimacy. They will appear onstage for a piece of intimate dialogue, public confrontation and self-questioning.
re-mapping the body
Equipped with wireless physiological sensors the dancers transform the movements in sound, creating the sound track of the piece.
In Falling grace we search the point of inflexion where everything can crumble or be restablished. Acclaimed and commercialized, what society calls balance results in a desire for domination and control.
For this creation we started with a questioning: can the authenticity of a gesture still provoke an emotion at the era of superficial physical performances and multiplication of ostentatious images?
