Deaths, disappearances or farewells are all ways of becoming absent, of loosing something, someone or yourself. At the same time, the things lost remain and bury themselves in our memory, so we’re dancing on the traces of existing graphs, collecting fragments, trying to see a whole that doesn’t exist. We’re carrying water that runs through our hands. If there’s no beginning, there’s no end, no margin, no hierarchy. In his first work with dancers, the theatre-maker Rabih Mroué is interested in the relationships between presence and absence, reality and fiction, focusing on performers’ bodies as sites of archival sedimentation of these questionable boundaries.
