FTA 2018 Opening Show
Masterpieces of abstract beauty, a tribute to the potential and perseverance of the human body, these two pieces dazzle with their minimalism and virtuosity. The young Chinese choreographer Tao Ye directs his dancers brilliantly, creating a magnetic, almost sacred presence. The titles refer to the number of dancers in each piece, and 6 and 9 are characterized by the undulating movement of the dancers performing in a space suffused with shadow and light. Tableaux of extraordinary fluidity, sparing and mysterious, 6 and 9 provoke an aesthetic and metaphysical shock.
