abstract:

Concept:

"Sweet fever" is a choreographic loop based on a single dance phrase, the iconic dance of "Fever Night", the group line dance at the disco in "Saturday Night Fever”. Performed by a large group of dancers, its long repetition moves between the faithful execution, to modification, deformation or complete disfigurement, and simultaneously enters into dialogue with the other theatrical elements such as video, music or lights, that re-signify this iconic choreography of the representation of the night and party worlds.

A ritualistic and ecstasy-like trip that proposes a (re)view of the world of banal entertainment and the constant search for immediate pleasure. A funny, reflective and very sweaty analogy between the dance of the past and the music of today, between the rigid choreography of the cinema in the seventies and the loose corporality of the current late night pleasure, between the representation of happiness on the big screen and the presentation the a real physical enjoyment in the performance space.

Realization:

"Sweet fever" is a flexible performative score created from the choreography of the number "Fever Night" in "Saturday Night Fever" to be performed by a large group of volunteers, that will learn the score in two rehearsal days.

Preferably, it should be presented at night and in a disco or nightclub, but can also be presented on the street or in open spaces, and also in unusual or non-theatrical spaces. The score of the piece is easily adaptable to any exhibition space and also permits a durational modification, making it longer or shorter, depending on the occasion.
