The man – I imagined a fragile being, an ageless child – is interpreted by a dancer. Seemingly fragile, Carol Vanni (France) loves to take on places and materials that give her a hard time. Thus, she moves under moving matter, monumental matter, blown, dragged, adrift, spread out and burgeoning vastly, in which the human appears and struggles against a greater whole, save when she lets herself be drawn vertically upwards.
Born in 1965 in La Seyne-sur-Mer.
Dancer and choreographer Carol Vanni has performed as a dancer in Paris for the Arcor dance company (Daniel Dobbles and Christine Gérard), the Santiago Sempere dance company, and the Triade dance company in Cotignac (Isabelle Mirova and Didier Tissot).
