“ PROXIMITIES, focus on a vital feeling. How close are we to others and to our own nature? To what extent can distance still be a strength and a momentum to feel proximity more intensely? ”

Olé Khamchanla

In this piece, Olé Khamchanla questions human beings and their interactions with others.

In turn, he explores the closeness that is discovered in dances, at the crossroads of cultures, in relationships with oneself and with others. He transmits his unique and powerful dance to the three performers and incorporates classical ballet for the first time.

The show is built in three parts, each of which shows a possible proximity.

 The first is a duo that offers a space where dancers can confront and compare themselves in a codified dance between classical European ballet and traditional dances from South Asia.

The second is a solo, a look at oneself, at transformation, at gender. A crossing of the plural personalities with which we must all combine in our intimacy to move forward and meet the other.

Then appears the trio, strongly connected despite the anarchy of the spaces, the personalities confront and connect in a powerful and organic dance.
