Loop.3

A bold choreographic installation, Loop.3 brings together nine moving bodies in a 2m2 space. Building a real moving human sculpture, the performers reveal nine different frames: inspired by Baroque paintings and contemporary photographs alike, they may just as easily represent a battle scene as a rugby match. In a disco atmosphere where rhythm and lighting vary quickly, the scenes are repeated from different angles, offering the spectator a global view. With this creation, the Chilean choreographer José Vidal uses his dancers to look at the behaviour of moving bodies in concert, bringing static images to life in an endless loop akin to meditation. 

A lively, moving tableau, inspired by Baroque painting and contemporary photographs.
 

“Let's imagine that a painting begins to move, quite slowly at first, almost imperceptibly. That, from itself, light produces a soft warmth. That colours come to life, awakening the bodies and causing postures to tremble. This movement of the pictorial figure glimmers through Loop.3, by the Chilean José Vidal, an unsettling experience of that which takes shape, patiently searching for the gaze of the spectator to take them on a journey of contemplation saturated in vibrations. The setting is tight – the piece takes place inside an area of two square metres. A lively tableau, fuelled with images from both Baroque paintings and contemporary photographs, combining a religious ceremony with a rugby match. A kind of iconographic halo where nine dancers gradually tame the space, weaving together links and contacts that allow the assembled community to discover themselves through an organic mutation at once compact and spacious, a moving, breathing mass that creates its own future.”
