As a child in Catalonia, Aina Alegre was marked by the spectacle of castells, the extraordinary human towers of people standing on one another’s shoulders, rising higher and higher, which joyously flaunt the power of group solidarity and a sense of community. Contemporary dance seems far removed from those festival rituals, but isn’t it also, as Hervé Guibert once wrote, to “redeem the death of gestures?” Exploring the festival and celebration universe, Aina Alegre draws choreographic material from a polyphony of bodies that transforms the stage into an “ephemeral home” fueled by a common rhythm. But another kind of home feeds the flames of LE JOUR DE LA BÊTE — the world of cabarets between WWI and WWII, where artists came up against the social and political rigidity of their time. From castells to cabarets, two secretly linked ways to celebrate “the vital need to party.”
