within the International showcase of young choreographers
The origin of this solo lies in the Islamic faith of Malika Djardi’s mother and her practice of prayer. The two women have a conversation and their recorded voices produce a documentary-style sound. Through this entirely natural and intimate intervention, a range of topics is explored, from holy considerations to other more secular ones. Slices of life are delivered involving the personal and the family, contributing to the universal.
This material carefully put together by the choreographer moves away from the words to its own arranged musicality, offering the dancer material for movement as the words are spoken and in the silence in between.
Sa Prière is also a moving reflection on ritual action of the kind found in practising a belief or in the dancer’s discipline.
At 20:30, after the end of the performance,
Meeting with the young choreographers
introduced by Valentina Gensini
