French collective (LA)HORDE continues to explore forms of protest and rebellion through dance. Room with a View is a blank page, a space devised as a white cube in which sounds, bodies and images can be inscribed to reflect on the shifting place of humanity.
In a marble quarry, various machines are in action, cutting and polishing the rock. While sculptors worked with marble to “free the human form inside the block” (Michelangelo), the virtuous performers from the Ballet national de Marseille dance to escape the stones’ white immobility, rising up to scrutinise the infinitely human contours of impending disaster and envisaging the very possibility of its beauty.
