THE TEN COMMANDMENTS — the solos // Harold Rhéaume (Le fils d'Adrien danse)


Year of creation: 2020

Duration: 90 minutes

10 performers 

In 1998, Harold Rhéaume tackles his first great work: The Ten Commandments, ambitious project for the young choreographer he is then. A piece that then raised complex issues about values and moral codes that support living together.

To celebrate the company’s 20th birthday, Le fils d’Adrien danse revisits this mythic piece, iconic of the work of its creator. Rhéaume reunites ten interpreters on stage to explore social tensions through the prism of the Tables of the Law. The piece unfolds in three versions: choreographic, cinematographic and in situ.

Thanks to a unifying dance, bearer of softness but also heartaches, THE TEN COMMANDMENTS suggests a reflection on the values and principles that guide our collective actions, yet especially on the ones we need to invent in order to respond to current issues.

A fresco hitting the heart of sensitivity by the celebration of our differences and singularities.
