  • After Là-bas, le lointain, Ravages et Les caveaux, Alan Lake continues to develop his multidisciplinary approach by engaging his choreographic language and sensitivity to visual arts in a play for 9 dancers and a live musician, inspired by Géricault’s Le Radeau de la Méduse and the state of emergency experienced by the shipwrecked people in the famous painting. Le cri des méduses takes place in an invented place, thrusting us into a terrifying dream-fantasy-an edgy physical dance like a pagan ritual, jolted by the images of a powerful scenography. Le cri des méduses is a waking dream, a dance of life, of survival.
