Chaleur humaine

2011

choreography

Two naked bodies, a thermal camera, a video projector, headphones, a few secret manipulations and presto, Stéphane Gladyszewski lures the audience by the senses and leads us deep within. Chaleur humaine creates a torrid ambience. The gasp of desire materializes in colourful waves along a thigh. Caresses trace the path of pleasure across an abdomen or the curve of a hip. The movement of the dancers is lost in video images of their lovemaking and their fantasies and we fall, like them, under the giddy spell of love. Intense moments of sensual enchantment.
