Tirtha

Worked since the origin of time, the rock, now sand and mud, lets beings that are half-reptile, half-human emerge. In rocky crevices swept by waves, males and females mate and handle each other in long-forgotten primitive rituals, gestures consisting in crawling and touching, mainly organic and animal.

 On the beaches of Calabria, Maguy Marin has found the paradise that she often seems to be seeking with her dancers (Babel Babel, Eden, etc.). The subaquatic scenes, the foam and surf shots, the colourful images of gleaming minerals are all metaphors for the original coitus. The film invents that mythical place where the elements are not yet totally separated and human beings are only just emerging from their gangue.

Marin, Maguy

Born in Toulouse, dancer and choreographer Maguy Marin studied classical ballet at the Toulouse dance academy. She then joined the Strasbourg Dance Company and later Mudra, Maurice Béjart’s multi-disciplinary school in Brussels. In 1978, with Daniel Ambash, she founded the Ballet-Théâtre de l’Arche, which was to become the Compagnie Maguy Marin in 1984. The Centre Chorégraphique National de Créteil et du Val-de-Marne followed in 1985: its unremitting artistic work spread worldwide.
In 1987, Marin’s encounter with musician-composer Denis Mariotte was the starting point of a decisive partnership, which broadened the scope of experimentation.
Then in 1998, a new place to settle in, for a new Centre Chorégraphique National, in Rillieux-la-Pape: a place as a we in time and space to strengthen one’s ability to foster those diagonal forces resisting oblivion (H. Arendt).
The year 2011 saw a remodelling of the framework in which the company’s reflection and achievements unfold. After the intensity of the Rillieux-la-Pape years, there emerged a need for a new phase in Toulouse from 2012.
In January, 2015, Maguy Marin and the company find the region of Lyon. An installation to ramdam to Sainte-Foy-lès-Lyon, who engages the deployment of a new ambitious project: RAMDAM, un centre d’art.

Collaboration between a choreographer and a writer can lead to the emergence of a large number of combinations. If sometimes the choreographer creates his dance around the work of an author, the writer can also choose dance as the subject of his text.
