In Our solo, Claire Croizé returns to the stage as a solo dancer in a face-to-face with violinist Aisha Orazbayeva, who brings a broad repertoire ranging from early music to avantgarde & experimental.

Our solo

Claire Croizé & Etienne Guilloteau

In Retour Amont: le rêve (2021), ECCE partnered violinist Aisha Orazbayeva, a member of the Ictus Ensemble. Due to her versatility and stage presence, Etienne Guilloteau and Claire Croizé invited her again for Our solo. In this new creation, Claire Croizé returns to the stage as a solo dancer.

Aisha Orazbayeva will write new compositions tailored to Guilloteau & Croizé’s choreography, which will stand alongside existing work by herself and other composers. Through improvisations, the three artists will create the new work together in the studio, challenging each other and incarnating each medium to create a real dialogue.

Some of Orazbayeva’s recordings, such as Circular Bowing Studies (2012, Angharad Davies), or Slow Change (2021, Aisha Orazbayeva) are as much a physical performance as a composition. The sound is the result of a repetitive, almost obsessive movement of the bow on the violin, which proves to be very physical to perform. The composition is the result of a physical labour that has much in common with the work of the dancer. Croizé will confront herself with this obsessive music. There is a quasi-physical sensation of the sound affecting the bodies.
