Vega

Emmanuel Jouthe

Show postponed to a later date. Keep an eye out!

VEGA is a stage movement with four dancers. Their main physical constraint is the coming and going between two places: a convolution that takes the time to deposit anecdotes of body and state and a system space to sketch certain encounters and to frame impressions of cohabitation.

In a shared space, somewhere in the inertia surrounding us, VEGA’s trajectory is an orbit that holds the body’s intangible shedding as a vector for rebirth and deliverance.

With this new creation, Emmanuel Jouthe is looking to free himself of his usual dramaturgical approaches and choreographic processes, and surrounding himself with a new team of light, costume and sound designers.

Punctuated by the weight of prose and driven by the costumes’ momentum and the physical engagement of the dancers, VEGA speaks to absence and presence.

Emmanuel Jouthe is the choreographer and the artistic director of Danse Carpe Diem/Emmanuel Jouthe. For 20 years now, he has produced more than fifteen pieces. In search of a sincere close relationship between the spectator and dance, he encourages exploration and creation by questioning the body and movement through scenic territories and diverse artistic relations as well as through concepts such as the Other, Beauty and Authenticity.

In addition to Écoute pour voir, a flagship project created in 2008, its repertoire includes Staccato, Rivière (2007) and When We Were Old (2013), trio and duo in which he has danced, as well as Cinq humeurs (2010) and Suites perméables (2017), group pieces. After creating the duo Rigel & Betelgeuse (2018), addressed for the outdoor public, he explores new avenues with a creation for 4 performers in orbit around the self and the notion of myth.
