UTT – new creation – october 2014

«UTT is a journey. The path taken by a woman from life to death, or maybe from death to birth.
UTT is a cry, an onomatopoeia, like when you are brutally hit in your stomach.»
Carlotta Ikeda

The Ariadone Company will open the Glob Théâtre’s season with the emblematic solo « UTT », recreated by Carlotta Ikeda for the dancer Maï Ishiwata.

The piece will be played on the 10,11,13,14,15,16, and 17th of october 2014, at 8pm.

More info soon!

UTT, it’s a breath.
UTT, you can’t pronounce it, it slips through your teeth. you breath it a bit like a «hush!» but without the «sh».
It’s between silence and speech, like a newborn scream or the last sigh of a dying person; you liven up and then you expire through breathing.

UTT is a solo because you come to this world alone and you leave it alone, the same way.

Alain Foix

Ariadone - UTT 1

Originally created in 1984 by Ko Murobushi and Carlotta Ikeda, UTT has been and emblematic piece in the artistic career of the Ariadone Company.
Moved by the desire to transmit her dance and knowledge, Carlotta Ikeda wants to create a new version using both her experience and emotional relationship with this piece and adding the point of view of a young dancer, Maï Ishiwata, who is willing to dig deeper in the art of Ikeda after taking part in the creation of two pieces with the company.
The passing of time and evolution of the contemporary world will add new shades and interpretations to the project, while keeping the striking power and extreme sensitivity of the original solo.
