In rehearsal with Marco Goecke — By Aliénor de Foucaud

Convulsive movements, rapidity of execution, dislocated bodies: Marco Goecke’s choreographic language is like none other. It does not belong to any movement nor draw inspiration from any other. It happens. It allows bodies to speak, cry out, and stir. Starting with a simple gesture of the hand, a facial expression or even an autobiographical anecdote, the choreographer offers striking images. Invited for the first time to create a piece for the Paris Opera Ballet, he encourages dancers and audiences alike to break free from the classical codes and to question the nature of the body…and man himself.
