Soa Ratsifandrihana

12 & 13.11.2022
Dance

Between the sharp, metallic sounds close to the glitch aesthetic of Sylvain Darrifourcq and the hip hop and woody instrumentals of Alban Murenzi, Soa Ratsifandrihana dances and invites us to listen, to feel this frugal and sensitive pleasure that the act provides. To dance. Faithful to her own temporality, she makes her solo a collective experience.

Groove is the articulation of a rhythmic motif which, in repetition, creates an uncontrolled swinging of the body which brings me joy and allows me to experience my emotions with intensity.
