SOL INVICTUS - HERVÈ KUOBI (FR)

A manifesto for life. Sol Invictus will be Luminous, Generous and Universal. Always halfway between hip-hop physicality and classic elevation Sol Invictus will be a declaration of love, a declaration of love to dance, to its past, to its present, to its future.

ABOUT THE EVENT

Somewhere in the universe we dance

Sol Invictus (Roman for "the undefeated sun") shows us a dream-like world where everything is simpler, more obvious and beautiful than we often see in everyday life.

The performance explores how we humans place ourselves in the dizzying infinity of the universe - with the sun as our life-giving anchor.

But when it gets dark around us, says Koubi, we have to light up life ourselves - and what better way than dance? With Sol Invictus, the choreographer wants to convince us of what he already knows: the world would be a more beautiful place if all people danced.

"Celebrating the links that unite us, those of life entangled in the cycle of the seasons.

To be reborn and then rediscover childhood, to become again this child amazed by the discovery of the world and the mystery of Life.

Oh yes, dancing like a child.

Dizzying with the place of the living in the immensity of the universe, with our place. May be it is just only about dancing, but dance allows this, beyond words, to celebrate life and bring us together. But what is “dancing together”?

The answer remains a mystery to me. What I do know, however, is that I want to talk about love, mutual help, solidarity, light and bonds, the one that unites us to life. I call on stage, a whole world and its smiles, a liberated spelling in the service of a writing that goes beyond borders, aesthetics, languages and styles. There will also be rounds and spirals. Those who raise each one of us thanks to the others, thanks to the Other. So ; here we are...maybe.

I want to make the stage a playground of all possibilities to welcome a dance that laughs, a dance that comes from the heart, from the mouth, from the hips, from the feet on a burning floor. There is an emergency, that of gathering yes but also of arousing hope.

So I choose. It will be a rite, a rite that we will invent at each performance to celebrate that we are alive.

Stanley Kubrick said " The most terrifying fact about the universe is not that it is hostile but that it is indifferent; but if we can come to terms with this indifference and accept the challenges of life within the boundaries of death our existence as a species can have genuine meaning and fulfillment. However vast the darkness, we must supply our own light ».

And since for me loving and dancing are indeed part of the same indivisible whole that is life, I would like Sol Invictus to be a spark.

A spark as brilliant as a life filled with the joy of dancing...together.»
