Nal Boa is the fruit of a work led between Korea and France during year 2010. It is at the same time the composition of our team : 6 Korean, 5 French, 1 Peruvian, 1 Flamande, 1 Japanese and the movement of the rehearsals in Korea which imposed a reflection on the other one, the foreigner. But especially a reflection on our situation of foreigner, somewhere else…
How I look at the other one, how the other one look at me ? What do I look ? What do I see ? Or do not see ? What do I understand or do not understand ?
Nal Boa stages composed glances, crossed glances, shooting, individual speaking in front of the other one, so pursuing our questioning on the individual in the group where the « I » is integral part of « us », where the « I » and the « us » are in permanent interaction, in reaction, in agreement or in conflict…
The show takes place along a wall. We need to lean the show there and making it develop at once a specific choreographic material and the intense imagination which it offers us : the wall as the refuge, to lean, to take some distance and to confront with itself ; a wall to remember itself, remember, take in itself. Be back in the wall, forced, trapped, more not be able tomove, jump by top. Back in the wall, to face, to face the present.
