MEMORANDUM OF INTENT

“It’s hard for me to write an argument, as I compose my shows like puzzles that each spectator can put together as he sees fit.
I thought of «Drastic Classicism» by Karole Armitage. An abundant punk rock energy, on the verge of breaking up, where dancers and musicians mingle and intertwine. It was a revelation to me.
I also thought of several films, including:
«Stop making sense», by Jonathan Demme, on a Talking Heads concert,
«Rude boy» by Jack Hazan and David Mingay, on a Clash tour,
«Phantom of the Paradise» by Brian De Palma, music by Paul Williams,
«An Endless Day» by Harold Ramis, with Bill Murray.
Stereo is the result of a desire for speed, brilliance, virtuosity, energy, rock’n roll. A raw energy that would be the foundation of the show, carried by a young team with multiple and complementary talents. Based on a rock trio – guitar, bass and drums – I am looking for a dance that is drawn, organic, that welcomes acrobatics as a pleasurable and spectacular complement, a dance that jumps and bounces, that bursts and springs, until breathless. The form is hybrid, between concert and show, and music and dance are one, together. The bodies oscillate between energy and hearing, speed and tenderness. It is also a game with time, which, as in life, contracts, stretches or repeats itself in infinite variations. Through these loops, we talk about love, always, we play, thwart and twist stereotypes and archetypes, to rearrange them in explosive combinations.”
