Dambë by Denis Caïozzi( Visual )

1 edition published in 2010 in French and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Dambë : Salia Sanou redécouvre et raconte l'univers sensoriel de son enfance. Un coq chante, calebasses et marmites s'entrechoquent, pilons et mortiers se donnent le "la", la meule du moulin racle les grains d'un bruit sourd ... Dambë laisse ressurgir la musique des "wellis", sorte de petits grelots qu'on met aux bébés dès leur naissance, pour qu'ils composent eux-mêmes la musique de leur première marche. Sur une scène, presque nue, quelques pierre çà et là, d'autres posées l'une sur l'autre tel un totem à l'étrange signification. La chanteuse, jouant d'un instrument insolite, arrive depuis la salle, le danseur, au physique puissant apparaît dans la pénombre. La lumière du jour qui perce lentement le secret de la nuit et l'homme qui se met lentement en mouvement devant nous nous raconte la vie porté par la voix puissane de la chanteuse. Tout nous porte à comprendre la frénésie de ce village qui est le monde. (Jaquette)
Pour Antigone by Valérie Urrea( Visual )

1 edition published in 2008 in French and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Parce que la tragédie grecque ne mettait pas en scène des personnages mais des forces, des tensions, des chocs et des formes particulières de désirs, la danse et les choeurs y tenaient une place essentielle. La force du non d'Antigone, figure même de la désobéissance qui refuse jusqu'à l'impasse et, au prix de sa vie, la loi des hommes pourrait-elle alors se manifester autrement que par des intensités de corps qui echappent à eux-mêmes? En rendre compte pour une chorégraphie comme M. Monnier, c'est retrouver les ressorts et le sens même du tragique au sein d'un contexte culturel et social actuels. En l'occurrence, confronter, loin de toute illusion de métissage conciliant, des lectures corporelles et musicales d'Antigone, interprétées magistralement par des artistes africains et occidentaux. Deux univers qui, se tenant en respect, n'ont de cesse à travers une savant dramaturgie, de mesurer leurs différences et leurs écrits pour inventer l'espace fragile où ils pourraient se rencontrer en nous. Isabelle Launay, mai 2008 (Jaquette)
