Barroco

Conception and dance Dominique Duszynski, Ennio Sammarco
Composer and musician Josselin Varengo

BARROCO: a Portuguese word, used in jewellery to indicate an irregular pearl. It is the root of the word "baroque", the artistic and literary trend of the XVII century, characterized by an aesthetics of exuberance and strangeness in reaction to Lutheran bareness and severity. Barroco originates from the wish of Dominique Duszynski and Ennio Sammarco to share an artistic experience. These two interpreters havee always followed very different artistic routes which nevertheless never ceased crossing each other. Two choreographers who usually pursue their artistic research along different paths.
Together, they chose as their starting point Dave Brubeck's compositions, because of their irregular rhythm, repetitive and obstinate in character, and their sense of swing, of lightness, roundness and blitheness.
Barroco explores the principle of freedom within an extremely structured picture. With the invaluable complicity of Josselin Varengo, a musician active in Lyon and intimate with the projects of the Woos, this musical reference, so familiar, becomes perturbed, diverted. He derives from it new sound perspectives which affect the two dancing bodies. Barroco is a dialogue among three people: each of them stirs, in the two other protagonists, new sound and choreographic responses, and plays with his/her own apparition and disappearance. Barroco, a triangular form which excludes neither oneness nor doubleness, where the affirmation of the self implies the relation with the other, is a strange artistic creation. In it, the elegant nonchalance and the extreme rigour of the gestures harmonize in one breath, exultant and liberating at once, and above all necessary.
