    A côté du réel, 2019

    Sunday 20th October- 2pm

    The Lithuanian dancer and choreographer Lora Juodkaite has collaborated for many years with Rachid Ouramdane. She is renowned for her vertiginous and exceptional practice of gyration, a spinning action that she has performed since childhood as a daily ritual and that brings her into a trancelike state. Rachid Ouramdane often uses this intriguing movement to plunge spectators into an unfamiliar state, enabling them to contemplate and rediscover spaces via the filter of this ritual. From these practical situations - presented by Rachid Ourambdane to Lora Juodkaite - an uncanny sensation and a sense of complicity arise. À côté du réel [Beside Reality], a performance based on this otherworldly spinning, implicitly reveals a vital need to practice this repetitive movement, demonstrating the way our gestures express something about who we are.
