CUTTING THROUGH THE NOISE
 

2024

Cutting Through the Noise is an energetic journey, an exaltation through the body and the music, a stream of liberating states, a search for identity carried by generous and insatiable beings. Given that the project was conceived during the second year of the pandemic, dance here is reinvested as an act of resilience.

 

On stage, 11 performers activate the space through a succession of steps in a forward motion towards the audience, allowing a series of subtle transformations to unfold. A playlist inspired by EBM (electronic body music), evoking the energy of a club, propels the movement. At the heart of this choreographic drift is a certain nostalgia, electric youth, and imagery belonging to the Post-Internet Generation. For Morin, the title of the piece claims a reappropriation of the body by this new generation – who are actively trying to find their way in a noisy world where screens reign more than ever, where sustained attention is increasingly difficult.
