„Shelter“ goes on tour!
In June 2021, French choreographers Christophe Béranger & Jonathan Pranlas-Descours were on a residency in Belgrade, where they worked with the students of the Belgrade Dance Institute! A new choreography named ‘Shelter’, produced on that occasion and presented at the Belgrade summer festival BELEF, is now starting its regional tour!
About performance: SHELTER is a new creation inspired with twofold inspiration: on one hand, there’s a musical score, where music and dance create a velocity, a speed, a flight of bodies for the audience; on the other hand, there’s a history of a legendary city such as Belgrade, which have witnessed a cycle of deconstruction and of rebuilding through decades… We are then building a shelter, from inside, that allows us to open to the world and reflect its contradiction, the quietness of the urban world and the heroism of living through. We reflected on how easily things fall apart, even the structures we imagine to be eternal, while the body remains our temple.
