6.11. // EURO-SCENE LEIPZIG: SOULÈVEMENT – dance performance
6 November 2021 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm€25,20
In the 31st edition of the euro-scene Leipzig, Julien’s solo piece SOULÈVEMENT is dedicated to the past and present of revolt, uprising and resistance, of new beginnings and visions since 1968. What remained of the utopias? Which discourses, ideas and freedoms? How has people been dancing since then? What is dreamed of and with whom?
Julien grew up listening to the music of pop star Mylène Farmer. She can be cheered by thousands while she sings her super hit “Génération Désenchantée”, the hymn of a “disillusioned generation”: “Everything is chaos. My ideals – worn out words ”. Julien puts himself in the limelight for the live recording: powerful, combative, quick-witted. Other audio recordings, including those of Martin Luther King, document the spirit of optimism from the time of the civil rights and student movements in Europe and the USA.
Today activists like those of the Occupy movement are fighting, but they are encountering an increasingly fragmented society in which new dance styles are emerging on the Internet. Carried by solitary Sturm und Drang, in the conflict between individualism and the desire for collective action, Julien puts all her daring into choreographies that use the online game Fortnite, HipHop and Krump.
And the audience? Puzzles with. Are we still a community today when we dance together or watch a play in the theater?
