Five performers are faced with a playful and ever-changing space. Everything becomes a pretext for play : costumes, set, makeup ; pleasure is everywhere and with everyone. Through its suggestive choreographies, fine wavelets of sound, multicoloured round dances and exhilarating aesthetics, the stage begins to look like a version of the Bauhaus’ Triadic Ballet. By creating an artificial universe where choreographic movement becomes the vector for enjoyment, the Zurich-based choreographer Lea Moro explores the mechanisms and contradictions of contemporary entertainment. Delving into the spaces between desire, euphoria, fear and nostalgia, Fun ! embarks dancers and audience members on a fabulous, caustic and exhilarating funfair ride. Superb, and inevitably funny.
Lea Moro (born in 1987) is a Swiss performer and choreographer. She studied at the Scuola Teatro Dimitri (BA in Physical Theatre), the Laban Centre London (Diploma in Dance Studies) and graduated in 2014 from the Inter-University Centre for Dance Berlin (BA Dance, Context, Choreography). With my work, I wish to involve the audience by creating affective situations. Making use of virtuosity, illusion and subtle humour allows for an ambiguity that at times evokes emotions and even pathos. I desire to learn new skills, be curious, obsessive and intuitive. She lives and works in Berlin and Zurich.
