Wolf – Secus

Aterballetto dances at the Teatro Rossini in Pesaro an evening that combines the choreographies of Hofesh Shechter and Ohad Naharin.

Hofesh Shechter is one of the most intense and visceral contemporary choreographers. Perhaps because the music is almost always composed by himself and is closely in tune with the energy of his movement. The result is a punch, as he himself says, a punch with which the viewer is hit by a wave of energy. In Wolf  we find a sort of wild animality that crosses sometimes men and sometimes women. The painting that is composed drags us into a mysterious and engaging universe.

 

Secus is a creation by Ohad Naharin that boasts a musical collage that extends from the unusual electronic styles of AGF to the seductive Indian melodies of Kaho Naa Pyar Hai to the resonant harmonies of the Beach Boys. This adventurously eclectic mix serves as a suitable backdrop for the boldly extravagant choreography. Under our unbelieving eyes, we compose a human alphabet made up of races, solos, clear and clean gestures, interrupted duets, which, through precise and sudden kicks, sinuous disarticulations of the hips, torsos that bend in all directions like rubber to be shaped, expresses pure emotions and feelings without becoming sentimental. Joy, vulnerability, fear, innocence, confusion and anger weave a harmonious and dynamic canvas that oscillates between delicacy and exaggeration.
