Charleroi danse s’engage à produire, présenter et accompagner les œuvres de Lara Barsacq de 2020 à fin 2022

Lara Barsacq, associate choreographer at Charleroi danse, is once again turning to the Ballets Russes at the start of the 20th century for inspiration, paying homage to one of its underrated creators, Bronislava Nijinska, who created the choreography for Les Noces to a score by Igor Stravinsky.
This ballet stages the marriage of a peasant couple and in particular the preparations (ritual of plaiting hair) of the young bride, in tears at the thought of this future union. Using the art of diversion and poetic digressions, Lara Barsacq takes this story and evokes femininity, rites of passage and the freedom of dancing bodies. The symbolism of the hair and the plait is extended in the images and beliefs attached to roots and fruit trees, in a reflection inspired by contemporary ecofeminism.
The show is conceived as a ceremony comprising dance, song and stories in paradoxical, joyful and melancholic harmony. A kingdom of sensuality, an ode to nature and a savage and intense piece, Fruit Tree is a call to the power of life
