Ten years ago, Benoît Lachambre presented his first ‘fake’ choreographic solo. He’s now back with Snakeskins, a multimedia and poly-sensorial performance. For his new creation, Benoît Lachambre has chosen a reptilian metaphor. Snakeskins, inevitably, is about molting, with an emphasis on the result and decomposition over time.

This solo (or once more this ‘fake’ solo, because he is accompanied on stage by the dancer Daniele Albanese and the musician/multi-instrumentalist Hahn Rowe) offers the choreographer the opportunity to point sharpen the strong lines of his work and reposition his approach in the present. To update this very inside inner, process, very organic process, the choreographer imagines a structure in perpective which that creates a leak point of emanation in space, clings on to it and plays upon weights dispersionsthe distribution of weight. The body undulates, surrenders, and is transformed by minute alterations of on symmetry and balance. There are multiple
Variations and amplitudes of movements are multiples. With Snakeskins, Benoît Lachambre gives opens himself up as never before, making his own skin a surface of resistance to any formatted ideas.
