Rachid Ouramdane is at the forefront of dance innovation, extending definitions of performer and choreographer and blurring the line between dance and documentary.
TORDRE is the story of Lithuanian dancer Lora Juodkaite who, spinning dizzyingly on the spot, has developed her own way of moving which have accompanied her since childhood.
It is also the story of the British dancer Annie Hanauer, moving with an articulated prosthetic arm which is at the same time both an extension and an integral part of her body.
In a haunting duet, two dancers perform lonely, intensely physical solos. Through hypnotic, whirling gestures, each woman’s body paints a raw, captivating self-portrait.
