GRAND JETÉ


 Dance and Film Theatre 


  A show about take-offs, landings
and the migration of experience.


The colloquial expression of “hanging in the air” is taken literal in this piece of dance-theatre performed on trampolines. Four young artists create pictures of suspense in every sense of the word. In film-pictures appear former professional dancers along with a still active 70-year old who narrate their moments in mid-air. Ideas and impetus go ping-pong between film and live action causing time to seem to stop and go. In the film (former) professional dancers narrate the experiences they have transferred from dance into their current daily lives. Today they have become physician, manager, scientist or pool attendant. His great leap (Grand Jeté) was spurred by curiosity: “Let’s see what live wants to be, once you stop telling it what it ought to be.”
