Play De Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui i Shantala Shivalingappa

La premsa ha dit... “Neix com un joc, una barreja de ball on Larbi combina el contemporani amb la dansa clàssica índia ‘kuchioudi’ que Shantala és la mestra indiscutible” Sergio Trombetta. La Stampa.06/02/11

“Dos ballarins, a causa dels diferents orígens i vocabularis gestuals. Tracten de construir un pont entre ells” Guy Duplat. La Libre Belgique. 26/10/10

“El resultat de dues cultures tan diverses sorprèn i satisfà, fins i tot la identitat dels ballarins impregna les proves d’intel·ligència” Gianfranco Capitta. Il Manifesto. 20/06/11

”Aquests dos virtuosos (...) es combinen amb els músics aportant uns passatges de gran bellesa, velocitat i refinament” Lisa Kraus. Philadelphia Inquirer. 17/09/11

Philadelphia Inquirer. 17/09/11

Philadelphia Inquirer, 17 September 2011 'Play,' a tumble of fun; 'Traces,' acrobatics plus Play. When dance legend Pina Bausch suggested that Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui and Shantala Shivalingappa work together, she uncapped a fount of joy for the artists and their audiences. These two virtuosos he in the kind of contemporary dance that fluidly traverses the space between air and floor, and she a stellar exemplar of Indian Kuchipudi dance - delightedly push each other and their musician counterparts into passages of extreme beauty, speed, and refinement. Unfolding on a set of mobile platforms with a grid of moving panels for a backdrop, Play is a digest of game structures and cultural exchanges. While trying on each other's forms, Shivalingappa gamely tumbles to the floor, rocking seesaw-like on her knees, and Cherkaoui does a creditable job of echoing her complex stamping rhythms and elegant hand mudras. The terrific musicians bring in strains of medieval plainsong, flamenco, and taiko drumming, and frequently all the performers join one another in singing. Most exquisite were Cherkaoui's marionette-master manipulations of Shivalingappa's head and hands, and the way this scene and many of Play's other images recur at the end in a dense, layered flashback. The one missing collaborator was a dramaturg; Play's episodic quality undercuts the power of its materials and performers. Still, it's a "do not miss." The artists will also take part in Saturday's free symposium, "Conversations on Cross Cultural Identity in 21st Century Performance." - Lisa Kraus
