La Criée is open from 8 pm to midnight
Élise Ladoué et Felicia Atkinson
from 9 pm and 11 pm
Starting from the short novel by Don DeLillo Point Omega, whose plot takes place in a museum and in a desert of West America, the dancer Élise Ladoué and Felicia Atkinson play a two-hour contemplative duo with their own language: dance, and music and sculpture.
Barely moving, a hand is stretching, a foot is arching, a ball of earth is forming between two fingers, a guitar drone is taking shape slowly. To improvise in an extended time, to share a territory without speaking same language, to compose an unresolved "suspense", to invite public to a contemplation as to that of landscape, Both mysterious and never complete, these are materials that make Omega.
Élise Ladoué and Felicia Atkinson met each other in 2003 in Bocal project by Boris Charmatz.
