Ice Skates And Other Cruelties is a choreography for a human body and glass. In a space with blurred edges where several worlds come together, you will see smooth moves and sharp glass. Or sharp moves and smooth glass. Hopefully a carved body will slice the glass. We will try to avoid that carved glass slices the body.
This performance, which takes place on a synthetic ice rink, draws the lines of a constantly transforming landscape where something cruel can find its poetry and something beautiful can reveal all its violence. Behind her layers of glass, Camille Paycha aims at triggering our collective imagination by making space, both literally and figuratively.
