From 7 to 9 June 2016

For the programme 40 Years of Tanztheater Wuppertal Pina Bausch, Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui elaborated Fractus. From a trio, the creation then developed into Fractus V, a piece for five dancers, including the choreographer, himself. Creation.

For Fractus V, Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui brings together Circassia’s Dimitri Jourde, lindy hop specialist Johnny Lloyd, flamenco dancer Thomé Dutena, and Patrick "TwoFace" Williams’ hip hop flow. With the Japanese percussions of Shogo Yoshi and the sound of Soumik’s Indian sarod, an intercultural community with a rich choreographic language has been created.

Inspiration for Fractus V came from Noam Chomsky’s reflection on objectivity and manipulation. The piece underscores the importance of regular introspection in order to preserve one’s liberty. Chomsky’s point is that individuals cannot arm themselves against political and social propaganda with meticulously combing through all the information.
