ピチェ・クランチェン『Dancing with Death』/Pichet Klunchun. "Dancing with Death"


タイ北東部のルーイ県で開催されるピーターコーン・フェスティバルからインスピレーションを得た作品。ピーターコーンでは、地元住民がさまざまな精霊をまつるために色彩ゆたかな仮面や衣装や小道具で仮装し、通りを練り歩いて陽気に祝い、精霊と人間が自由になんの恐れもなく交流し、2つの世界が混在となってダンスが生まれる。『Dancing with Death』では、これまでクランチェンがタイ古典舞踊をもとに作り上げてきたコンテンポラリーダンスの技法と、民族舞踊の開かれていて即興的、有機的、直観的な性質とが融合して、新たな身体言語が生み出されている。この新たな動きの原理によって、ダンサーたちがさまざまに異なるポーズ、身振り、姿勢を新たに即興し続けることが可能になっている。この作品は持続的創造の振付であり、永遠循環としての「死後の生」のイメージである。
A creation inspired by the Phi Ta Khon festival that is celebrated in the Loei province of northeastern Thailand, where locals participate in a street parade with colourful masks, costumes and props to honour spirits of all kinds — two separate worlds mingle together to dance, where humans and spirits are free to engage with each other, without any fear. A new physical vocabulary is created inDancing with Death that marries this open, improvisational, organic and intuitive nature of folk expression with Klunchun’s contemporary choreographic system based on classical Thai dance. With the new principles of moving, his dancers are able to continuously improvise poses, gestures and positions that are always different and fresh. It is choreography of continuous creativity and an image of ‘life after death’ as a never-ending cycle.
