Dancewalk – Retroperspectives 2018

“Let me offer a retrospective, a poetic analysis and a few future perspectives for this activity which consists of dancing over several kilometres and which I call “dancewalk”.”

Dancewalk has been performed by Foofwa since 2015 in various contexts and locations, sometimes with other professional dancers, workshop participants and with local collaborating musicians.

Dancewalk – Retroperspectives is a live dancewalk on stage, performed in front of the projection of a compilation of three years of dancewalks around the planet.

“ It’s experimental, it’s alive

It’s a test, an attempt, a spontaneous creation

It takes imbalanced movement

And repeats it until it finds temporary balance

Like a child learning to walk

Dancewalking

It’s preaching the cabriole

It’s replacing gloominess with dynamic good humour”

Together with the Dancewalker performing on stage, the public is travelling around the world in Switzerland, South Africa, Russia, Bosnia-Herzegovina, France, China.
