group piece ordered by CCN – Ballet de Lorraine in Nancy for its 25 dancers
I would like to construct the piece Decay as a great generalized slowdown that is shared by the 25 dancers of the ballet. I think of the plane’s braking distance on its runway, the inertia of the liner facing the iceberg, the urgency to turn the tide. Decay is the decline of the day, of the vain race, of the passing of time; it is the gardener who watches the blooming of the flowers and their putrefaction, slow and progressive, in the smallest detail; it is the atomization of movement. To become as dilated as after love, as a long laugh, in the inertia of thought, boredom, sweat after the effort that is no longer to provide.
