20 October 1968, Mexico
Choreography: Pierre Larauza and Emmanuelle Vincent
A documentary dance piece in which a historic sports tribute and a political allegory cross an intergenerational face-to-face about breathless movement. Starting point for this creation is the ‘documentary sculpture’ by Pierre Larauza, depicting the high jump of Dick Fosbury on the 20th of October 1968 in Mexico. A revolution of the high jump by jumping with his head first. Beyond a tribute, the creation is an ode to ‘territorial freedom’ through the allegory of the obstacle frontier, symbolized by a wall that can be overcome mentally if not physically.
