TAKEMEHOME is a new piece created by Dimitri Chamblas and Kim Gordon (Sonic Youth) and performed by nine dancers, five electric guitars and five amplifiers, the creation takes shape under a luminous zeppelin where silhouettes emerge and disappear. These shadows are the forgotten ones of the great metropolises: prisoners, elders, unproductive ghosts, the neglected, the indecisive. Rendered visible in this device itself ready to disappear and embodied by dancers with precise movements, they wander, hesitate or suddenly assert a vital impulse, display an attempt, repeat it, share it. In these emergences, in this collective isolation, telepathy and intuition maintain communication. Between the lines, under the skin, the driving force of the future and of the living continues to circulate and resist.
takemehome is part of the Dance Reflections by Van Cleef & Arpels Festival in New York.
ABOUT DANCE REFLECTIONS BY VAN CLEEF & ARPELS
Profoundly attached to the world of dance since its origins, the High Jewelry Maison strengthens its commitment with Dance Reflections by Van Cleef & Arpels. Guided by the values of creation, transmission, and education, this initiative aims to support artists and institutions in presenting choreographic heritage, while also promoting new productions. Since its launch in 2020, it has promoted numerous dance companies for their creations as well as the presentation of multiple performances around the world. The program is complemented each year by major events, including the Dance Reflections by Van Cleef & Arpels Festival, whose first edition took place in London in March 2022. This support further extends to awareness-raising actions focused on dance culture for the broadest possible audience, professionals and amateurs alike. dancereflections-vancleefarpels.com
