Loïc Perela

Throughout SOLO, I will dance like there is no tomorrow because I only know this moment in time.
Tue 21 Mar ’23
Wed 22 Mar ’23

In the dance performance SOLO, Loïc Perela is on a quest to explore the voices and the stories that possibly make him. What are the ways we construct, perpetuate, believe or ignore stories? How do they shape who we are? How do they shape the way we look at and consider others?

In SOLO, I will create bits of stories that stay suspended for you to imagine their ends. With SOLO, I will create soundscapes with my voice and body for you to be moved. During SOLO, I will dance. Throughout SOLO, I will dance like there is no tomorrow because I only know this moment in time.

Histories, politics, social norms and expectations alongside creative unknowns and silences to wonder. ‘I play and dance with it because my body and soul are shaped by such clay. I listen or shut my ears, I open or close my eyes. I create little abstractions for us to hang out with.’

The abundance I hear moves the bodies I live with. 

After talk

Loïc Perela (choreographer and performer of SOLO) will be opening a dialogue with the audience around notions such as patchwork and storytelling in a dance performance. Feel free to join.
