Choreography: Didier Boutiana

In the creole language of Reunion Island, “kanyar” refers to a person considered as an outcast. To marginalization. Choreographer Didier Boutiana tackles psychological and social conditioning of the individual, and the consequences of exclusion. As every violent experience, the break of a social link leaves scars in our body, in our emotions and breath. For the development of postures, gestures and movements, the choreographer researches in his own experiences and environment. A body crosses space. He questions social rules, also those of theater itself. He exceeds conventions to free himself.
