Cyberchrist

Synopsis

This performance stems from two principle sources of inspiration: the 14 stations of the path of the cross and the anatomical engravings of André Vésale. The final result being a study of the mutations of the contemporary body. Within this body, as in the songs of Madonna, we find images of Christianity as well as certain fading images of Vésale but for the most part these bones, muscles and nerves revealed in this anatomical pursuit, are far from the humanistic model of the Renaissance. This body contains, within a blur, technology and nature, sacredness and sex, innovation and tradition without any preferential order. Finally, we suggest that the spectator be intuitive without searching for any aspect of dramatic coherence in what is proposed and which is concluded very well within the body itself.

“This solo for male dancer, set to an electronic score by the Belgian group Noise-Maker’s Fifes, is a short work of extraordinary intensity that fully exploits the uncommon talent of American dancer Lucius Romeo-Fromm. (…) After the exaltation of the body seen through the eyes of renaissance man, Smits forces us to take a hard look at evil. Dr. Jekyll has turned into Mr. Hyde: the transformation of Fromm is nothing short of astonishing. Alone on stage for 35 minutes, this exceptional dance kept the audience transfixed from beginning to end”
