It is more than time for this blog to come back to dance. Documentary piece on Sasha Waltz on Arte last Saturday. The jubilation of Dido and Aenas again. Discovering the performance for the opening of Radialsystems where she posted dancers and musicians everywhere in the building, inhabiting it with dance, before she brought all of them together for a common choregraphy. Even more, watching her giving instructions to her dancers. She is a ball of intense purpose running to find the spot in the hall from which she can project on each of them her vision of what her or his body is capable of. One of her dancers says : she paints the full space with our bodies, as if our moves were paint strokes.
