Cie. Nacera Belaza

Le Cercle invites us to a space between the detached rigour of Sufism, the circularity of break-dance battles, and the almost mathematical precision of a certain modernism. The movements of the dancers are transported by a force that is fluid, yet structured, as if borne from below by a deep and continuous breath. Bearing both the legacy of traditional forms and the abstraction of contemporary dance, the practice of Nacera Belaza, defies any attempt at classification and description. In Le Cercle she reinterprets the motif of a past choreography like a musician develops the theme of a symphony, by exposing buried variants. The choreography fills us with a sense of freedom, allowing the dancers to erase the individuality behind this movement in continuous variation. They stand like silhouettes at the edge of a circle of light, raising a political question about what it means to be visible.
