Resulting from an encounter between nine performers from various urban dance horizons, Bugging reveals on stage the symptoms of the current systemic disorder. This is what happens when the body sounds the alarm…
How can we translate the body’s revolt against a world gone mad? In Bugging, Étienne Rochefort reminds us that contemporary dance is born out of social dysfunction. Popping, voguing, break, krump: all these choreographic expressions came out of various parts of the world as a refusal to be dominated or subjected to injustice. Through alien or sublimated bodies, the performers of Bugging experience this worldly existence in the flesh: syncopation, mechanisation, loss of self, explosive energy ... Clearly political, Bugging turns the body into the principal whistleblower against minds in denial ... all the while offering dance as a possible remedy.
