THE HIDDEN GARDEN
CIE JILL CROVISIER / JC MOVEMENT PRODUCTION
The Hidden Garden is an intermediary world, a mysterious place where reality intertwines with fantasy. A strange creature evolves within a square of synthetic grass, in a choreography inspired by gothic short stories, fantasy literature and our society’s normalized customs.
This visually powerful – and humor-filled! – solo piece blurs the lines between dance, performance and visual art. It can be performed in two different versions: by a male dancer or by Jill Crovisier herself.
“Man becomes comparable to a supernatural creature. Obsessed, this creature sucks the life out of those who dare to confront it. Dreams, simple pleasures and poetry are suffocated.” - Jill Crovisier -
