Cie Mosterd met Zaad – Gent, Belgium

L’AIR de rien

NL – “L’AIR de rien” vertrekt vanuit de fascinatie voor de menselijke drang naar controle én het verlies van die controle.

Een vrouw probeert haar wereld te beheersen. Planmatig. Doelgericht. Onverwacht ontdekt ze een voor haar onbekende vrijheid. Hoe laat ze zich hierdoor beïnvloeden? En kan ze dit wel in haar leven inpassen?

“L’AIR de rien” balanceert tussen dans en theater, beweegt tussen spel en choreografie

EN – “L’AIR de rien” is a fascination for the human yearning for control and the loss of this control. A woman tries to manage her world. She’s methodical, goal oriented. Unexpectedly she discovers a new kind of freedom. How will she let herself be influenced by this? Can she incorporate this in her life?

The urge for control is reduced to its essence in “L’AIR de rien”. There is only one goal: controlling breath. Breath is a metaphor for life. You can control breath up until the point the body takes over from the will. This overtaking, this reflex, saves life. To put it in another way: life arises from the loss of control.

“L’AIR de rien” balances between dance and theatre, moves in between acting and choreography.

“There is no such thing as an empty space or an empty time. There is always something to see, something to hear. In fact, try as we may to make a silence, we cannot.” (John Cage)
