"Les Héritier⋅x" is a trio performed by Évo Mine Lambillon and Pierre Piton, dancers, and Stélios Lazarou, renaissance flutist and electronic musician.
The performance observes "Orchésography", the first manual of dance and choreographic writing, produced by Toinot Arbeau (1588). In this manual, Toinot Arbeau, a Jesuit priest and dancing master, teaches his disciple, a young lawyer, the art of dancing. At the critical point where dance finds its new destiny as choreography is the joint work of a lawyer and a priest. This is a powerful founding duo for considering choreography's historical relationship with law and authority.
Using this document as a starting point, the performance unfolds between documentary restitution and musical and choreographic rewriting, while observing the resonance of such a work in our contemporary world. The Renaissance ballroom becomes a land of colour, postures, song, ritualised dances, and spectacular intentions.
