Claire Croizé - EVOL

Claire Croizé

Love, beauty, poetry and a touch of rock’n roll are at the heart of this new creation for four dancersEVOL is LOVE spelled backwards, but it is also an abbreviation of ‘evolution’. Claire Croizé focuses with loving attention on the body of her dancers and the beauty of their movements. EVOL wants to share that love with the audience.

EVOL was inspired by Rainer Maria Rilke’s Duino Elegies. Without words, the dancer’s evoke the poetry in its purest form, combining highly technical forms with free-flowing movements in order to tell a story of despair, life and joy. EVOL shows us what it means to embody a text, to live and tell it through the body. 

Songs from David Bowie’s early works provide a vibrant, poppy soundtrack with a lyrical undercurrent. The mysticism and romance of Rilke’s angels and beasts is mirrored by Bowie’s surrealism. But the element of recognition also plays an important role here: known and loved by everyone, Bowie’s music connects the personal memories of those who hear it with the stories told by the dancers on stage. Without ever illustrating, EVOL brings together these different influences in a powerful dance performance.
