What can we expect from the unexpected? What can we recognize in the chaotic, in a world governed by unpredictability?
We All Fall Down Interdisciplinary Creations (WAFD) is proud to bring you choreographer Helen Simard’s PAPILLON. Drawing on the aesthetics of street and contemporary dance, PAPILLON juxtaposes three solos and a live experimental soundtrack in a complex trio that explores the delicate balance between order and disorder.
For 50 minutes, three dancers weave in and out of sync through a complex choreographic partition, supported by a live, hypnotic musical soundtrack that blends the sounds and rhythms of jazz, hip-hop and drum’n’bass. Inspired by chaos theory and mathematical equations, PAPILLON is a raw, engulfing reflection on loneliness and togetherness, singularity and similarity, metamorphosis and above all, the importance of human connection.
