This is a project inspired by The Three Graces, the neoclassical sculpture by Antonio Canova, a universal reference for beauty, proportions and measure. On the stage four dancers construct a game between reality and fiction that questions the canons of beauty. Following the classical music score by Vivaldi and Strauss and the electronic contemporary music of Matmos and Koudiam, Graces weaves a sculptural pop piece that investigates the different tones of an insolent charm that can cancel out all the standards of beauty.
COWBOYS is a dazzling, boisterous, frantic piece of dance on the subject of the populists in power. It celebrates the lack of shame and the egomania, the thundering confidence in themselves, and the cruelty of the populists who take the law into their own hands. It mocks the feverish helpless people, who make these cowboys their heroes. And the liberals in power, who stoke the fire with their honesty and outrage. At some point on the edge, you can see the legendary sworn enemy of the cowboys, according to the spirit of the time and the place.
