In the 16 minute movie entitled Novaciéries, (LA)HORDE sets up a contemplative situation staging and reinterpreting Jumpstyle, a dance emerged from Mainstream Hardcore, to deliver a mysterious report on the development of a post-internet dance. The film is a global project mixing cinematographic images shot by a movie crew but also performance captations with the cast of the film and homemade videos made by the interpreters themselves shared on youtube and other platforms. The camera follows a singer and dancers wander in an abandoned steel mill. The dancers respond to the lost beat of machinery by executing Hard Jump and Hakken figures while the singer turns a Hardcore anthem «Hardcore to the bone» into a lyrical lament. We are invited to follow the wander of the interpreters until they get together to deliver a show without an audience. All along we waver between the idealized vision of their representation and the reality of its visibility.
Novaciéries is a combination of cinema, performance, and home video that transcends dance films and presents a choreographed and metaphysical portrait of the post-industrial world by reinterpreting post-internet dance.
