("Schieve" means twisted or crazy in Brussels).


In her new solo "To be schieve or a romantic attempt", Brussels-based choreographer and dancer Fanny Brouyaux, trained as a classical and contemporary musician and dancer, focuses on the visceral aspect of romantic movement: the heartstrings. Through rhythmic mastery of the physical and mechanical tensions of different emotional states: the emergence of a sob, the technicality of trembling, of spasm, she explores the friction between controlled gestures and the uncontrolled movements that run through her during attacks of spasmophilia. A former cellist, she invites the spectator's gaze to be disturbed, constantly playing with the opposition between lyrical virtuoso gestures and anarchic impulsive gestures. Accompanied by a soundtrack featuring Paganini's various caprices, the dancer unravels the tensions that inhabit her body, setting out to find fossils of emotion.
