Soul Chain

tanzmainz

The sensational contemporary dance ensemble from Staatstheater Mainz in Germany makes its debut in Quebec with Soul Chain by Sharon Eyal and Gai Behar.

A hypnotic trance of crazy energy. A tandem with a dazzling career, Sharon Eyal and Gai Behar continue to explore love and desire in works of visceral intensity, which resonate deep within us. Soul Chain , created for tanzmainz and winner of the prestigious German Der Faust prize, is one of their most notable works. But don't expect too much romance, warns Eyal! To the relentless techno rhythms of DJ Ori Lichtik, a chorus of 17 dancers on demi-pointe “driven by an irrepressible, almost animal, but terribly solitary desire to leap out of oneself” vibrates and throbs in perfect synergy. Adjusted like clockwork, this strange parade of variations both minute and complex culminates in a formidable crescendo, to the point of exhaustion. A tour de force.
