Bizzy Anna

Synopsis

This short presentation created for the dancer Ines Cera is a special solo that oscillate between "trash" and "camp". Thierry Smits got the inspiration from the romantic and gothic atmosphere in the movie of Matthew Barney "Cremaster". The audience dressed with a white apron enters in a space that looks like a laboratory- sterility and glare- and for fifteen minutes observes a ambiguous and hybrid creature that evolves in a bassin filled with milky and sticky liquid.  The timid creature is initially amorphous but breaks out of his stupor, stretches and starts an increasingly powerful dance that sometimes flirts with the shamelessness. From its watery world, this androgynous water nymph introduces her audience in a universe where everything moves between curiosity and dizziness, between feeling and knowledge, and nightmarish extravaganza.

« …Thierry Smits offers at la Balsamine a suprising solo inspired by the powerfull work of Matthew Barney ( a serie of five movies/sculptures called « Crewmaster ») : deformed bodies, over weird atmosphere, gelatinous material, mutant. WIth Thierry SMits, this world takes place in a pool full of water surrounded by the audience wearing for the occasion a white apron. In the center of the pool, nestled on a cushion, the dancer Ines Cera is transformed in a wild form, pointed ears and colored lens. The body is covered with light flakes and surrounded by gelatinous white water. The wierd being deploys gradually, half human, half animal, snorts on the cushion, glides on the water and spurts it on the audience. Evolving on the surface of the water like a Messiah, it collapses at the end prostrated. Thierry Smits succeeds to create a spellbinding universe… »
