Dress Code

Julien Carlier {Brussels}
  • Duration: 50'
  • Location : Centre Culturel de Welkenraedt

This piece, the title of which is a metaphor for the lifestyle that must be followed to be a member of the breakdancing community, sees five young dancers – one girl and four boys – take the floor as part of their artistic training. As part of the training, Julien Carlier’s choreography takes on a ritualistic dimension as it dissects the codes of urban dance, exposing strengths and weaknesses and both physical and psychological mechanisms that are inherent to it. The focus on the individuality and experience of the performers allows us to understand the self-sacrifice of the discipline, its physical discomfort and rigour, the violence of confrontations, the power and unity of the collective, the attempts to rise above and, paradoxically, the search for approval. The energy is communicative, the lighting remarkable, the virtuosity total and the joy of being together absolute.
