Going from one body to another, from one choreographic tradition to the next, from one historical moment to the present, is the creative impulse behind this stupendous choreographic work by Brazilian artist Pol Pi. ECCE (H)OMO is a re-interpretation of a cycle of five dances on Human Affections – Ehre/Eitelkeit (Pride/Vanity), Begierde (Desire), Hass (Hate), Angst (Fear), Liebe (Love) – , created by German choreographer Dore Hoyer between 1959 and 1962. Hoyer, who committed suicide after the audiovisual caption of these solos, always remained on the margins of the German scene despite having danced for Mary Wigman. Nevertheless, her work occupies a unique place in the history of dance, representing the boundary between different styles and eras. The work of reconstruction and transmission that Pi has done, not only opens new perspectives on Doyer’s singular work , but also constitutes a very elegant composition and mise en scène in itself. A must see of the 2019-2020 season.
