‘Being in the race’ is the leitmotif of the ARIA solo. By suggesting speed without resorting to rapidity, the body and mind are kept in a latent tension, ready for any acceleration. This quest for speed, for surpassing oneself, is thus countered by the sluggishness of our human condition, whose fall is underlying.
The meticulous choreographic language developed by Jasmine Morand in ARIA draws its inspiration from the technical register of motor sport, from aerodynamics, vanishing points and resistance to the G-force to create a singular and intense dance in a cockpit atmosphere.
To the rhythm of four fans, the piece deconstructs the figure of the icon, of the champion, by staging a mature body that tends to push the limits to be lifted to the top, like a moving sculpture covered in gold.
ARIA evokes this devotion, this devouring sacrifice of passion which, in the end, could only be a child's heroic dream...
After MIRE and LUMEN (Swiss Dance Show Award 2020), in which the dancers offered themselves to the public through the prism of mirrors, choreographer Jasmine Morand wanted to return to the essentials, to that form of intimate dance that she had been exploring for over a decade: the solo.
