When one lives in a bubble
When this bubble doesn't help you evolve
When evolution requires an impossible possibility.
Thaïs is a new creation by Miquel G. Font following the dramaturgy patron of the awarded Before Time - 0'1234 (Stuttgart, 2015). A solo piece where technical resistance challenges itself in a very fragile situation in which the interpreter has no other reference in space than the point shoes' contact to the floor. She sees nothing, in that bubble, and this provoques an inner trip that no even the white clothe can conver.
With the very sensitive music by Jules Massenet and a high precision body language, this 6 minutes solo becomes a huge challange for the dances as for the audience thus it creates a constant tension and attention on stage. Miquel G. Font considers Thaïs as one of his pearls in his repertory since very few dancers could really execute it properly.
Thaïs is an 8-minute which 6 first minutes were originally created in the context of the long-running piece called Xoc Anti- Tempo, produced by Ballet Contemporani de Catalunya under the artistic direction of Miquel G. Font. This excerpt from the production, unlike other excerpts from other productions, has its own dramaturgy, therefore, it becomes an isolated piece for the context of BLANK PAGE running now with the three years maturity after its premiere and maturity over several stages in Catalonia.
