ALZBETA is a cruel piece, unintentionally so, like an unknown number. A piece of fiction inspired by animals and humans, festive, yet serious in its absurdity, its violence and its naivety.

 

solo            ALZBETA HLUCHA            

Lost in between of nowhere,
in an large white landscape,
she with her empty cage…
Hidden by a black sever costume,
lives a little stranger, wild and nice,
crazy, shy and provocante,
spontaneous and naive,
violent with her tenderness.

The « personage » half human - half animal,
is a funny mix, full of contradictions.
Everything what is impossible is ordinary for her.
Everything unimaginable is simply normal.
Everything what doesn’t fit together makes a perfect harmony in her inside world.
She has her own poesy, her rules, her rituals,her own physicality and musicality of movements, her silence. It goes into all directions without any restriction, apparently chaotic, but although so coordinated and harmonious.

 

duet               ALZBETA

This story, inspired by fairytales, takes place beyond time.
It developed from the meeting of two «characters», both a little strange.
Their playful and savage relationship evolves throughout the piece
in surreal, and yet deadly serious way.
The obvious never remains so.
The atmosphere reminds us of the villages of Eastern Europe,
where festivities are tainted with melancholy and morbidity.
The use of pure physicality to explore inner violence, obsession,
savageness, animality and restraint, has produced a dance
which is simultaneously tragic and funny.

« ... It’s dark. She makes few steps, sees a mail box and throws her passport inside. Having the feeling that somebody was coming, “someone sent”, since we know, she is in difficulty at the moment.                                                                                                        Unika Zurn – L’Homme-Jasmin, page 46

«...When she tries to read, the lines are crossing and mixing themselves. The doctor makes her draw a simple square. Impossible. The four lines don’t join themselves. When she shakes her hand, this movement scares her as if this hand was not hers, as if it belonged to a body that was not hers. A bit later she tries to draw the head of an animal and can’t come to the end of this problem: to put the teeth of the animal inside of his jaw – she draws them beside the head. Her sense of orientation is disturbed….”                                                                                           Unika Zurn – L’Homme-Jasmin, page 86

 

In this research, I would like to enter into the chaos to find out a world on its own. Inspired by Primitive Art and Naïve Art, I would like to reverse the perception of “outsiders”, crazy people living in “their own reality”… To invite to feel more than trying to understand, to give permission to the chaos, to open… Beside the anxious, violent and wild first impression I would love to come closer to the part of poetry, dream, lightness, beauty, abandon, acceptation and innocence of these people, who are living out of the reality. Despite of the huge hopelessness, misery and suffering I would love to approach the dreamlike vision, of the soft and delicate madness of people living in the impenetrable world.

In this creation we will pass through the divers states of the body, to find out a particular physicality of people living “out of norms”, which have lost image and control of their body. They live more instinctively, in the spontaneity of movements and emotions. Their tics, dynamic, rhythm, repetitions, obsessions, rituals, passions… are often very specific, radical and emphasized.

Their bodies are their houses fulfilled with dance with their own very specific vocabulary. To visit these abandoned and destroyed bodies / houses. To feel the smell of ruins and the smell of emptiness. To touch the unknown past which stays inside of us. To approach the phantoms of forgetting and soft madness.
