MAGNETIKAE

MAGNETIKAE is a a creation for four performers – a dancer, a singer, a pianist and a percussionist.

Myriam Allard and Hedi Graja bring together two diametrically opposed worlds: that of a language, flamenco, and that of the imagination, embodied by the ice floe. Creating a powerful sensorial universe, playing with the wealth of contrasts and dissonance born out of these two extremes, they place the concepts of exile and the other at the heart of this face-to-face performance. In this new offering, the iconoclastic duo assembles a visual environment, sound references and elegant, passionate colours, continuing a journey they began ten years ago. A flamenco story on an ice floe—the senses collide in an original and poetic piece.
