After choreographer Virgilio Sieni with Eivind Aarset playing live in "Isolotto" and “10 miniballetti” by CollettivO CineticO dance company, the review "Italiani a Parigi" ends with “Sleep technique” by Dewey Dell performance collective, an “attempt of a dialogue” with the first homo sapiens.

The cave at Chauvet-Pont d’Arc houses the oldest rock paintings found to date. This is the starting-point for Dewey Dell to create a show which takes the audience on a poetic journey right to the origins of European culture.

“When we enter a cave and we look at prehistoric paintings, a wide and deep connection ignites. We truly feel that the past is looking at us in the same way we are staring into it” - they note.

So, in a powerful interplay of choreography, music, stage design and lighting, they try to represent what let us feel still linked today to traces of our forebears’ myths and rituals.

Dewey Dell’s work is characterized by the interlacement of dance, music, other fine arts. On the occasion of the performance “Sleep Technique”, on stage at the Théâtre de Gennevilliers from 17th to 20th May, the company presents also a very peculiar live concert after the last show on 20th.
