Boris Charmatz / Musée de la danse — danse de nuit


In 2015, Sadler's Wells presented two of Boris Charmatz’s works in collaboration with Tate Modern. Aatt enen tionon saw three dancers on a three-level podium inviting, quite literally, a different perspective. That same year manger had dancers eating rice paper in an extended ritual of singing, eating and dancing which was both bewildering and strangely watchable.

This spring we go with him to the edge of the city, after dark, to a place where dance does not usually dare go. Six dancers are moved by a palpable sense of urgency: what are they doing there? They seem to have a lot to say, as text comes out of them fast. Made after the Paris terrorist attacks of 2015, this new work meshes with the city itself. Like playing truant after hours when we should be safely at home, this is an invitation to not play it safe.
