The spectacle “Black Spring” is an interrogation of the Western glance on Africa, as told through African bodies. The film explores African dance which, confronted with images of Africa of today, widens our matter towards a crucial question: that of our glance to the other. Taken out of their usual context and treated in abstract way, the movements of the dancer are filmed so as to reflect very singular experiments. “Black Spring” puts the finger on the political as much as cultural influences of the African modern dance. [en français] Le spectacle "Black Spring" est une interrogation du regard occidental sur l’afrique, à travers ses corps. Le film se saisit de la matière dansée du spectacle qui, confrontée à des images de l’afrique d’aujourd’hui, élargit notre propos vers une question essentielle: celle de notre regard sur l’autre. Sortis de leur contexte habituel et traités de façon assez abstraite, les mouvements du danseur sont filmés de manière à refléter des expériences très singulières. "Black Spring", met le doigt sur les influences autant politiques que culturelles de la danse moderne africaine.
