KALAM/TERRE (earth) is a contemporary piece inspired by a ritual from Kerala (South India), Kalam Ezhuttu( space drawing).
In this ephemeral invocation to
the unfolding of time and space,
KALAM/ TERRE presents the
phases of the piece, from its origin
to its disappearance, that is from
the elaboration of the drawing to
the bodies of the dancers erasing
it. This organic and eloquent dance
composed of crawling and jumps
is magnified by filmed images of
bodies mutating, a strange memory
of plant life and animal life.

The music, composed by François-Bernard Mâche for percussion and elementary sounds, creates a sturdy structure as dance and video alternate.

KALAM/TERRE unfolds in two phases

Phase one: the drawing of the Kalam on stage: 5 hours open to the audience and /or a video projection //A Possible Meeting with the audience 90 min before the show // adaptation according to site and stage. The visual artist traces on the floor a huge “mandala” with rice powder and the intertwined shapes are filled in with five colored powders.

Phase two: the dance performance (45 min): both dancers inhabit the
space of the drawing at the foot of two large video screens before erasing its boundaries.
