Créations Estelle Clareton Danse

Self migrations

With the very first creative explorations for S’envoler, Estelle Clareton was asking questions about identity and place of belonging after living and creating for several years in Quebec. Moving from country of origin to adoptive country, how does one develop roots, weave intimate links of memory and attachment to place? What if it is in the tracing of the thousand travels between one place and the other that one’s true identity is situated? An imaginative and poetic realm of the artist, suspended precisely between these two poles, in a place of perpetual movement of comings and goings, of doubt and certainty… There are opposite poles evoked in her choreographic work, from the playful lightness of her first pieces to the recent Furies creations that plunged into the more sombre and monstrous aspects of being. Two internal countries that are looking for reconciliation in S’envoler. Inspired by birds and their vast migrations, Estelle Clareton and a team of twelve committed and generous dancers have created a performance of incessant travels between hesitant waltzes and thrilling impulses where the body, in a constant state of alert, searches incessantly for its place and its emancipation.
