TORDRE by Rachid Ouramdane

1&2 December 2017 | 20.00 | Market Theatre | JHB

A duet, two solos, for two women.

Two dancers come charging onto the stage. An epic opening of determinedly false starts, a series of impassioned solos,  nothing is quite what it seems. Solid sculptures start to move, gentle spinning becomes a dangerous compulsion, and calm is interrupted.

TORDRE is the story of two performers who have been closely involved with Rachid Ouramdane's work for a number of years. It is the two performers's distinctive physicalities that finally unite through a series of raw and captivating self-portraits, threaded with emotion.

Paris, at night. This is where Jeni, Wenceslas, Christine, Pascal and the others live. Homeless, they haunt the streets and bridges, and corridors of the metro; on the edge of a world where society no longer offers protection. They face us and they talk.
