Attitudes habillées

Balkis Moutashar

Attitudes habillées, choreographer Balkis Moutashar’s latest creation, offers a journey through the history of clothes, or more precisely the different body shapes they have outlined over time. What memory might contemporary bodies have of them? Have generations of corsets and metal bustles left traces on today’s bodies and the way they move? Do we wear hoods these days like people used to wear traditional headdresses?

Mixing games of forms and social issues, Attitudes habillées brings onto the stage three women, one man and various reproductions of items of historical clothing in a series of solos that are both documentary and imaginary, offering a contemporary rereading of a piece of our collective history.
