Former dancer of the Ballet Preljocaj, Liam Warren has created his company, now a structure called RIFT. He focuses his research on the human body and its ability to adapt or react to contraints. Merge falls in his physical approach of dancing.
In a world in which the individual is constantly at the crossroads of multiple interactions, Merge proposes a singular interpretation of collective cohabitation : 5 bodies moving in an uninterrupted circular flow, bound by one physical force : rotation. The lines that identify the performers fade until the body is reduced to a shell of kinetic energy, shifting beyond any isolating social divisions.
Liam Warren constructs a complex choreographic system of interweaving in which each dancer follows his/her own trajectory while being magnetized by a gravitational force. All the matter, movement, light and sound melts into the vibratory field and produces a hypnotic whirlwind.
