Completed during the lockdown of the Covid-19 pandemic, the video directed by Marine Brutti, Jonathan Debrouwer & Arthur Harel of La Horde begins as a retelling of the live experience of “Room With A View” and the backstage reality of the Châtelet Theater. But something changed in our world this year.
Chaos is making its way to the safety of our homes, our families, our way of life. The dancers of La Horde are swept away in a storm — they will have to find a way to work together, to recontextualize their relationships in order to survive.
Along with our heroes, we dive into uncharted territory: hallucinatory digital effects alter our reality beyond recognition — we step from present to future.
“Room With A View“ is the title of a show built on the collaboration of the collective, with the French electronic music producer Rone and the Châtelet Theatre in Paris, which took place in early March 2020 initially for 10 performances. Although the show was stopped in the middle of the week of performances due to the measures imposed by the Coronavirus health crisis, the first performances were a public and critical success, which today opens the doors to a diffusion outside the doors of the Theatre and abroad.
This clip brings a fresh look at the choreographic piece “Room With A View“, an independent work that also retraces the origins of the project by literally crossing the piece in a dancing tornado.
