Sandra Iché and her co-workers of Association Wagons libres will be in residence at La Villette - Paris from 4rth to 19th September 2017, to work on the creation Droite-Gauche, which the premiere will take place as part of Parallèle —8 from 2nd to 3rd February.
As a way for Sandra Iché to work on history with the tools of fiction (what happened, what could have happened) and the stage (rhythm, space, body), Droite-Gauche is both about showing a research and putting it in play choreographically and theatrically. The project, whose final form will be presented in 2018, combines work methods of many collaborators. Challenging how disciplines are waterproof, philosophers, dancers, historians, actors and sociologists question together the mechanisms of where one stands politically and within power relations. Reconstructions of family itineraries in 19th and 20th century France, interviews of right-wing people, translation games with migrants who have just arrived in France: these are some of the ways with which Droite-Gauche scrutinises the physical and political orientation of a body in the spaces it goes through.
