Wang Ramirez - EVERYNESS

EVERYNESS

Running Time: 70 min
Creation 2016
A production featuring 5 dancers, an original music from Schallbauer and a set design by the award winning designer Constance Guisset.

EVERYNESS is much more than a simple return to the most elementary practices in performing arts. In this case, it’s putting into the forefront the theme of Wang Ramirez’ human relationships, both in friendship and in romance.

Five dancers, along with the sixth character, a white and almost transparent sphere, reveal surprising expressive capacities.

The work of French artist and designer Constance Guisset offers an abstract volume with indescribable connotations.

Wang & Ramirez develop their choreographic visions in a strong visual environment. They create a new approach to body and movement inspired by each dancer’s personal expression and offer a style of dance that explores the notion of defying gravity.

EVERYNESS defines a new reality of suspension and weight. The rigging is reinventing itself under the auspices of the Berlin specialist Kai Gaedtke, rope magician who gives autonomous life to Guisset’s sculpture, like a star filled with lightweight desires.

“(...) a beautiful, energetic and gentle ensemble (...) so nicely composed.” 
Le Travailleur Catalan

“(…) a permanent struggle with an artistic dimension, executed by a crew of wonderful dancers torn between desire and rejection, under the weight of an inflatable globe, with means of hiphop style.”
Dance For You Magazine | Volkmar Draeger’s Best Production of the Year
