Hominal/Xaba | Marie-Caroline Hominal & Nelisiwe Xaba

14 September 202419:00Cinquième Salle | Place des Arts


The HOMINAL / XXX series, launched in 2015, explores how creativity manifests itself through appropriation and transformation. Directed by Marie-Caroline Hominal, the series focuses primarily on the role of the auteur.e. For each piece in the series, Hominal invites an artist, director, choreographer and/or visual artist to collaborate with her, sharing roles, working together or side by side to create something new.

“They weave a text on a reflecting stage. In this fragile dialogue that hangs by a thread, two women dance through appropriated cultures, internet tutorials and machine-reproduced patterns. This piece is a textile manifesto. Two choreographers, one South African, the other Swiss, play at measuring themselves. The suits they cut for themselves on stage are both laughable and frightening.“
– Arnaud Robert
