The CieLaroque dance company has been creating a name for itself with its interdisciplinary works.
CONTEMPORARY dance is subject to individual interpretation, and often times, what the choreographer is trying to convey is hidden in layers.
With this is mind, Austrian choreographer Helene Weinzierl and her CieLaroque dance company will present two works at the Damansara Performing Arts Centre in Petaling Jaya, Selangor this weekend.
Is It Me and Think Fish shows how different interpretations of a single theme or topic, approached from opposing attitudes and perceptions of understanding, may lead to a completely absurd form of (mis)communication.
The programme notes read: “We see a couple. We get the feeling that what we are seeing is not in perfect harmony. What we see seems to be exhausting, unhealthy, laborious, and somehow, appears to be unpleasant – the harmony is missing.”
Is It Me will be performed by Yuri Korec, who explores the artist and his fictional character, while Think Fish will be danced by Korec and Viviana Escalé. There is disharmony, and the absurdity reaches a peak when the structures of power collapse and dissolve.
Weinzierl, a former dancer, has carved a name for herself as an intelligent and sensitive choreographer.
She established CieLaroque in 1995 and since then, the company has built a reputation for itself and is constantly touring the world. Some of the productions feature a connection between dance and theatre, while others are dedicated exclusively to a clear and intensive language of movement.
In recent years, the work of the company has been characterised by interdisciplinary pieces and the use of multimedia.
> Is It Me and Think Fish by CieLaroque is on at the Damanasara Performing Arts Centre, Empire Damansara, Jalan PJU 8/8, Damansara Perdana, Petaling Jaya in Selangor on Jan 24 and 25 at 8.30pm. Tickets cost RM38 and RM28 (students/senior citizens). Call 03-4065 0001. Browse: www.dpac.com.my.
