À bras-le-corps

This is truly exceptional: Boris Charmatz and Dimitri Chamblas were only 19 when they first danced this duet 25 years ago, and they still show it to this day. Anyone who watches À bras le corps understands why. It’s the tension between exertion and collapse, trial and error, the wheeze of dying and the dogged breath of life that makes this piece such a rousing experience. Two men, dressed in white, pull, roll and carry each other in the narrow confines of a square stage space resembling a boxing ring. The audience is up-close to the strenuous dancing. Together with the symphony of breath, the dull thuds of falling bodies, the rushing of fabrics rubbing against each other and the music by Paganini structure an eerie acoustic space. And if you want more of the same, do come and watch the two films by César Vayssié featuring Boris Charmatz shown at Leopold cinema!
