MC 14/22 “Ceci est mon corps” is a meeting of the spiritual and the carnal, drawing on St Mark’s version of the Last Supper in the Bible : “Take, eat : this is my body”. Created for twelve male dancers - Preljocaj’s Apostles of Movement’ - and with soundscapes by Tedd Zahmal, this powerfully sensual and passionate work is a hymn to the male body, stripped down to its deepest reality, juxtaposing the glorification of strength and the condemnation of force.
Stéphane Bullion, Guillaume Charlot, Jean-Christophe Guerri, Emmanuel Hoff, Gil Isoart, Stéphane Phavorin, Simon Valastro, Vincent Cordier, Yong-Geol Kim, Nicolas Noël, Alexis Renaud and Sylvain Groud (dancer, singer, special guest).
