Medea

The encounter between Carlotta Ikeda and Pascal Quignard has taken form around Medea, the figure of Euripides’ tragedy. It dances love, writes premeditation, embodies terror and expresses the complex and contradictory nature of the character of Medea, who represents both humanity through her passion, and the inhuman through her acts.

Haru No Saiten – Un sacre du Printemps

 » A dance from the depths, a silent symphony from the bowels of the earth and the human body, Carlotta Ikeda’s Butô is both combustion and distillation, it makes sacred the body’s eternal springtime, in a voyage towards the magic moment when dawn and dusk are one.  »

Jean-Marc Adolphe (Théâtre de la Bastille’s programme, 1999)
