New York “Topologie“

Abstract : “Almost inevitably, a French dance scholar heading to the Chocolate Factory Theater in Long Island City on May 6, 2014 to discover Annie Vigier and Franck Apertet's outdoor choreography experiences contrasting emotions. Feelings of intellectual and kinesthetic excitement are forged en route, telescoping into at least three planes of impression." "In the Plexiglas covering the map, I see my own reflection and, behind me, the street. I am in a complex space, as if I had slipped between modes of representation and superimposed myself onto different spatial realities. I am here, at the Chocolate Factory Theater, and there, in the map, moving through the red line. I am soon outside, behind myself. Because I still think that the dancers have the most beautiful role in “Topologie” through movement, they experiment New York otherwise and build an experience. And because I still feel like walking.”
