Choreographer and dancer Ayelen Parolin approaches multiple universes and aesthetics, aiming to shed light on the complexity of the self and to probe what binds us to others. Born in Buenos Aires, where she studied, she lives and works in Brussels. In recent years she has dedicated herself to methodically investigate human nature with a rigorously precise, calculated and obstinate writing of movement, to speak of the social and the ritual in an abstraction taken to the limits of the body.

 

WEG is a transformative experience for eight dancers and a pianist, a deliberately plural, extravagant, prolific and tumultuous choreographic experiment to reveal the cracks, but also the resources, of human beings.

 

The movements of this “sweet choreographic trance” transport the audience into an apparent chaos, in a process of self-organisation inspired by Pierre C. Dauby’s latest research on dynamic systems.

 

Defined by Le Soir as a “formidable visual firework in which humour and elegance are wonderfully combined”, the show unfolds before the eyes of the spectator as a kind of daydream, a kaleidoscopic polyphony that explores the notion of pleasure, of an interior melody that leads to movement.

 

“When I read Sapiens by Yuval Noah Harari, I began to fantasise about creating a work nourished by intimate universes, about the discovery of the self. With WEG I wanted to work on the exuberant fantasies that inhabit this paradoxical, incoherent, unstable and fragile sapiens“, says Ayelen Parolin.

 

A rhythmic sound as if it were a heartbeat and the notes of Lea Petra’s piano make up the soundtrack of this performance that represents an evolving eco-system, a dancing humanity and all its nuances.
