The Company Synergie will be in residency at Flux Laboratory from July 1st to 9th to work on a new creation.

“116th dream” is a 25 minutes choreographic in situ piece interpreted by two dancer-choreographers, Evita Pitara and Cédric Gagneur, and one guitarist-composer, Bruno Dias.

The piece's intention is to convey, with a dance and an original music, the atmosphere of four songs by Bob Dylan without them ever being played: Motorpsycho Nightmare (1964), Bob Dylan's 115th dream, Subterranean Homesick Blues and Love Minus Zero / No Limit (1965).

All these songs were influenced by the Beat Generation movement and Surrealism. They reveal a proliferation of tragic, political and cinematographic characters, mixed up in absurd situations.

How can one incarnate Bob Dylan’s voice in an improvised movement? This study explores the wish to find a common playground through which to reveal each dancer’s individuality and spontaneity. The musical research is based on the rhythmical and melodic reinterpretation of those songs by a solo guitar.

"116th dream" is like a dream to solve, an open door giving on a world of surrealist images and far-fetched characters.

Conception and choreography: Evita Pitara & Cédric Gagneur

Music: Bruno Dias
