WEG (created in October 2019, Biennale Charleroi danse)

WEG, Ayelen Parolin’s new creation, immerges nine dancers and a pianist into a transformative experience that opens up the field of multiple possible identities. A deliberately plural, extravagant, prolific and tumultuous choreographic experiment.

With her accomplice Lea Petra, Ayelen Parolin guides nine paths of individuation through a kaleidoscopic polyphony, relying on multiple movements repertoires, extravagant, grotesque, complex and uncomplicated registers, revealing the cracks – but also the resources – of sensitive human beings.

With the collaboration of the physicist Pierre C. Dauby, Ayelen Parolin orchestrates these journeys according to specific dynamics of collective movements, inspired by his latest researches on dynamical systems.

However, far from representing standardized movements, such as flocks of birds, shoals of fish, Ayelen lets her imagination considers swarms of giraffes and elephants, schools of lions and crocodiles, herds of koalas, etc.

« It’s a little embarrassing that after forty-five years of research and study, the best advice I can give people is to be a little kinder with each other. » (Aldous Huxley)
