L’être ensemble dans INXILIO. Danse et politique en Colombie

Abstract : In 2010 a number of Latin-American countries celebrated the bicentennial of their independence from the Spanish Empire. Commissioned by the city of Bogota for a piece to mark the national festivities, the choreographers created INXILIO with the aim of paying homage to the victims of forced displacement in Colombia – los desplazados – ; this piece explores the multiple possibilities of the action of walking. Using INXILIO as a case study, we propose a set of possible relationships of dance to politics, encompassing questions of human rights and the duty of memory, links with state power, and above all, the constitution of a collective body. By focusing our analysis on “figures of the community” – a concept drawn from the work edited by Claire Rousier, Être ensemble – we examine tensions and contradictions between the explicit statement of political message and the critical force of danced gesture.
