Basic ingredients: 1 space, 1 piano, some stilts and 2 bodies — a musician and a dancer. What’s the relationship here? Not just abstract, as a dialogue between dance and music could be. There’s the body, even some physical contact; physicality experiences itself in relation to the mass of the piano, to its complex mechanics and craftsmanship. In “Soli.des,” Sébastien Laurent and pianist Claudine Simon create a playground that affirms the experience of incarnation, at a time when the digital environments we immerse ourselves in can make the very notion of solidity and the material evanescent. It’s about having no fear of confrontation, questioning the human relationship with machines and mechanics — a reciprocal balance of power. “Generating a kind of system,” Claudine Simon and Sébastien Laurent say, “in which player becomes machine by forming a ‘couple’ — as one might say in physics — of inseparable forces in the production of energy that’s made up of sound and gesture.”
