The choreographer and dancer appears alone on stage in a performance that aims to explore the relationship between form, imagination and movement
On 1 and 2 October, Hiroshima will host a unique performance by choreographer and dancer Yasmine Hugonnet. In Le Récital des Postures, Hugonnet exhibits a series of postures that exude both agility and power, while displaying a great poetic sensibility. Alone on the stage, as if floating in a white space, her postures – some of which seem to be simply impossible – have a direct impact on the audience, who are taken away by their dreams and imagination. It’s a solo performance that’s brimming with suggestive images and sensations that addresses what lies underneath the skin, combining dance, physical performance and even elements of ventriloquism.
According to Yasmine Hugonnet: “My first intention was to seek a position in my body, on stage with the intention to reconcile an intense commitment and abandonment. A posture so intensely committed in the action of receptivity”. Hugonett is an artist committed to exploring the relationship between form, imagination and movement, using dance as her preferred language. Born in Montreux, Switzerland in 1979, she has performed all around the world and founded her own company, Mouvementés, in 2010. The performance that can be seen at Hiroshima was created within the framework of “Danse et Dramaturgie 13-14”, organised by Théâtre Sévelin 36 in Lausanne.
