Xavier Le Roy l Southbank Centre

28 november 2010, 8:00 pm
Inquisitive French choreographer Xavier Le Roy eludes the usual categories with his iconoclastic body of work which draws on his background as a scientist.
His new piece explores the boundaries of the relationship between audience and performer, using a cast that comprises of some of the most creative practitioners in the current dance scene.
Low pieces is a surprising work structured by interruptions and open conversations between the audience and the performers. A series of 'landscapes' (or performance situations) develop as the performers and the audience build diverse kinds of relationships that challenge the rules of theatre.
The piece started as an innovative project called 6 Months 1 Location at the Centre Chorégraphique National de Montpellier (France) in 2008. It was initiated by Xavier Le Roy and performance theorist/maker Bojana Cvéjic with 20 other dance makers and students. Since then, it has developed with a changing cast of performers, manifesting itself into a different performance each time.
