HAKANAÏ

23 November 2017 at 19:30

COMPAGNIE ADRIEN M & CLAIRE B

"Hakanaï" is a performance by a dancer in a cube of moving images. A choreography that draws the evanescence of dreams and the impermanence of things.
 
In Japanese, Hakanaï defines what is impermanent, fragile, evanescent, transitory, between dream and reality. A very ancient word, it evokes an elusive matter associated with the human condition and its precariousness, but also associated with nature. It is written by combining two elements, one that designates man and the other that designates dreams. This symbolic collage is the starting point of this score where a dancer encounters images, creating a space situated at the fringes of the imaginery and the real. 
 
The images are played live, according to physical models of movement, to the rhythm of an acoustic creation that is also played live. The show is tri-frontal, and at the end of the performance, the set-up is opened up to spectators. 
 
The Adrien M & Claire B company creates forms ranging from shows to installations in the field of digital and living arts. It is co-directed by Claire Bardainne and Adrien Mondot. Their approach places human beings at the center of the technological challenge, and the body at the heart of the images, specialising itself in the customised developement of its computer tools. They continue their search for the digitally alive: mobile, artisanal, ephemeral and sensitive.

HOMMAGE A THOMAS SANKARA

VARIOUS

Thomas Sankara (1949-1987) was a Burkinabé military captain, Marxist revolutionary, pan-Africanist and President of Burkina Faso from 1983 to 1987, whose charisma, ambitious social and economic programmes, struggle against corruption and French colonial power, gained him widespread popular support. He was overthrown and assassinated in a coup d'état on 15 October 1987. 

Thirty years later, he continues to be referred to as "Africa's Che Guevara".
