Grrrrr is a ritualistic
dance that brings animal figures made of pelts, furs and feathers to life. The
impressive costume eases the dancer’s metamorphosis into different animals,
ranging from tiger to horse to bird, all while keeping her own legs to dance.
This bestiary of hybrid animals takes the children into a tender, gentle
universe that is both absurd and magical.
Animality allows what
we forbid our domesticated bodies: to breathe noisily, to wriggle and jiggle
around, to crawl and slither… In a nutshell, it allows us to run wild. Animals
have always been the ideal mode of interpretation to characterize
transgressions and catharsis. They illustrate what we want to be, and what we
are afraid of.
Grrrrr is a wild and festive
experience, a grand ball!
