Xavier Le Roy (DE/FR)
Let’s be honest: is there anything more painful than to find out that the dividing lines one has grown fond of turn out to be increasingly blurred, permeable or possibly even just imaginary? Such as the lines between health and sickness, faith and truth, object and subject, fiction and reality – or even the one between life and death. Xavier Le Roy, the outstanding French choreographer with a PhD in molecular biology, puts his hand on this very sore spot. He does so by arranging three pieces into an evening programme in which the separation and/or differentiation between the artist and the audience or performer(s) and spectators dissolves. This results in disquieting situations. One memory and several protagonists are lost on the way, but revenants of puppets by Heinrich von Kleist show up instead, as do melancholy, loneliness and grief. Not in order for all those present to wallow in a sea of tears but to discover how to gain new strength from loss and pain.
