Silence, the new creation by choreographer Isabella Soupart, delves into the heart of the book 21 Lessons on the 21st Century by Yuval Noah Harari. For this production, she continues her collaboration with pianist Guy Vandromme and invites the Swedish-Swiss Silas Bieri to curate the sound design. In this work Isabella Soupart analyzes the challenges of contemporary technology, the impact of social media, political issues and the way we show resilience in handling despair and hope. Silence explores the malleability of time and the immobility and the iconography of movement, based on our digital and analogue world.
With Silence, the choreographer designs a contemporary electro ballet, where nine dancers/performers play with the codes of contemporary dance, in the spirit of pop-rock-punk culture. A performance in which the inclusiveness of this world is offered as a quest and response to the globalisation of the 21st century.
