TORDRE opens rather mischievously with the music from Funny Girl, William Wyler`s American musical film.
Start DateNov 28 2017
French Institute of South Africa in association with the Artscape and CCN2-Centre choregraphique national de Grenoble presents Rachid Ouramdane`s TORDRE, a duo dance piece full of enthusiasm and energy. From the sweet childish rounds to the dervish`s whirls, Rachid Ouramdane`s dancers take us on a fascinating voyage.
TORDRE opens rather mischievously with the music from Funny Girl, William Wyler`s American musical film. Two dancers come charging onto the stage and, as they do so, we smile at the sweeping body beautiful archetypes which lay behind so many of Broadway`s fantasies. It is Annie Hanauer and Lora Juodkaite`s distinctive physicalities that unite them in these raw and captivating self-portraits, threaded with emotion.
TORDRE forms part of the Artscape ArtsAbility Festival.
