How the human body carries in itself the memory of the Vast.
How the human body – beyond ruptures, oppressions, and confinements – has nostalgia of Nature and Vastness.
VAST is a contemporary dance theatre show. It tells the journey of a young man from Nepal who is forced into exile in a big indian city. Beyond oppression and confinement , he tries to find in his body a path to his Himalaya. He is accompanied in his journey by the monkey God : Hanuman. A story of reconnection with Nature and Vastness.
We draw upon contemporary dance, theatre, vocal work, and even aerial dance to explore this inner territory between confinement and Vastness. From gravity to weightlessness, it is also an exploration of the body being free, of free movements in three dimensions, and of an expansion into Vastness.
Beyond all ruptures and exiles, it is a process of reconnection with the Himalaya in a metaphorical sense.
VAST is an organic dance theatre performance: hypnotic, physical, universal.
