Togethering, a group solo
2015

Togethering, a group solo' embraces dance as an expression, a social activity and a collective process. Presenting us with a series of proposals in which dance is both a means and an end to togetherness, it includes a lecture on speech and agreement within groups, a telepathic dance and a poetry reading. Alice Chauchat shares some aspects of the collective imagination she practiced over the past 15 years in the field of dance and choreography. They are stories about co-existing and about sharing. While remaining in their formal territories (spectators watching, dancer dancing), performer and audience share roles: assistant, companion, collaborator or host, as protagonists of the theatrical event. Considering our shared time/space both as a reality and as a projection space for other occasions of coming-together, it is an invitation to address those occasions as experiments that are each time re-formulated and that we invent together.
