(UN)ROOTED is a performance opening a discussion on humanity’s deep, inherent need for belonging, roots, pairs, and marks. (UN)ROOTED reaches into our roots with struggle, entanglement, or rejection, in order to find peace within ourselves.
We all endlessly search for our family, our roots, our origins.
We all experience various degrees of orphanage, dealing with the different cycles of life.
We all want to be part of something, part of the group, part of society, part of the whole.
Moving bodies, sounds, text, and lights respond using the techniques of free improvisation to engage performers and audience into a spontaneous exchange. Composed of 3 pieces that will last 15-30 minutes each, the show will be followed by a Q&A to discuss the process behind the elaboration of this performance, opening the floor to deepen the discussion with the audience and special guests.
Musical, scenic and choreographic conception by Sandie Donzica and François Minaux.
Dancer: Sandie Donzica
François Minaux: Flutes, vocal
Bob Hoffnar: Pedalsteel guitar
Chris Demetriou: Percussion, melodica
About Corps Multiple, the first and only artistic company created by French artists in Austin, Texas. We create researched experimental scenic improvisations, based on intimate experiences from people around us, as well as human psychology and behavior. We strive to develop artistic evenings crossing genres and disciplines to produce eclectic, spontaneous and intriguing contemporary works in order to touch the senses, emotions and thoughts of the audience. This is our very first project, and we are honored to premiere at The VORTEX.
