Die Ausschreitung

Cécile Bally & Emma Tricard

Misty summer morning, Glitch and Copper Key are walking towards the Digital Park. They are friends. It’s 2101. The world has been flooded, and yes, that has challenged architecture ever since. As they pass, the »Safety, Sanity and Security« sign flashes on the door. A vague memory pops up, they remember they don’t remember. Caught in an autocratic virtual world that feeds them with synthetic fries, they wonder how long can they continue to adapt ? Will they succeed to hack the future?

Choregrapher Cécile Bally and Emma Tricard create with the foley artist Niels Bovri a dance performance based on a Science Fiction novel. Written collectively during workshops in Kortrijk, Santiago de Chile, Aix-en Provence and Berlin, »Die Ausschreitung« became a political thriller.

Emma Tricard, currently based in Marseille, graduated from the Master Exerce at the ICI-CCN in Montpellier. Dancer and choreographer, she loves to talk. Since 2015, she develops a choreographic research based on the observation and distortion between »saying« and »doing«. Thrown into an adventurous quest, she invents dances of conjugation, thinks her work in the future and plays humorously with the causal relationships between things, thoughts, movements and natural phenomena.

Cécile Bally is a Berlin-based choreographer with degrees in dance (HZT Berlin) and economics (École Normale Supérieure de Paris-Saclay). Her artistic work creates links between these two milieus and questions, with humor, the place of rationality and magical realism in performance. Cécile Bally anchors her work in the world of science fiction as a social critique and looks at predominant entities of current popular culture provoking dreams and nightmares at the same time.
