Bolzano Danza Tanz Bozen - Ophelia



Bolzano Bozen

Choreography: Yoann Bourgeois

Italian premiere


Co-director of the CCN2-Grenoble, Yoann Bourgeois, who trained in the contemporary circus, has been investigating the theme of suspension for many years. The festival audience will remember his mechanical arm-balance inside Museion on which a woman in white spun in the air in the performance Les Yeux tournent autour du soleil. But for Bourgeois the suspension is not only in the air: in Ophelia he experiments with suspension from breath, apnea. Inspired by Act IV, Scene VII of Shakespeare's Hamlet and the figure of Ophelia, Bourgeois rethinks his suicide in a poetic way, re-proposing a delicate image of dissolution through a surprising scenic device composed of a bed, an aquarium and a crane, assisted by the interpreter Marie Vaudin and the poignant Nacht und Träume D 827 by Franz Schubert.
