Migrant Bodies – BABEL in Vitry-sur-Seine, France

Migrant Bodies – BABEL in Vitry-sur-Seine, France

This morning at La Briqueterie CDCN du Val-de-Marne 13 participants started a workshop on the BABEL project proposed by choreographer Jordi Galí and Katia Mozet to build a new tower and work together for three days. Here’s a small text – in French! – about meeting and the first warm up.


Matin 1 – Pour revenir vers Babel.
Se dire bonjour, d’abord.
dans les yeux avec les mains se serrer la main droite puis la main gauche
« bonjour »
se prendre dans les bras.
En cercle, si tout le monde se tient assez proche il est possible que les corps penchent légèrement vers l’avant ou l’arrière, et ça tient. On a la liberté d’observer les micro oscillations qui agitent ce cercle vivant et on est sûrs de ne pas tomber. On crée une chaîne d’énergie qui rend cette réunion épaule contre épaule organique et vibrante en créant quelque chose de mouvant et stable à la fois.
En cercle, on se masse les épaules et on réveille les doigts. On agite ses os.
C’est encore le matin. On apprend les prénoms.
Aujourd’hui :
