Alexandre Fandard takes on the image of a young man from the urban margins; his postures and the fear he arouses.
In turn barbaric, riffraff, potential terrorist and eternal stranger, the “youth from the suburbs” is often a masculine figure, despised, adulated, sacrificed or eroticised.
Alexandre Fandard’s creations as a visual artist and choreographer never remain fixated in one form and bring to the stage all these rock-solid archetypes. In this new research in solo, he rehabilitates the youth from the suburbs as a symbol.
The dancer wears the French flag on his jacket and uses this symbol as an attempt to redeem this figure, while transforming himself into a national product in its own right.
