A choreographic study by the Annette Leday/Keli company

Conception: Annette Leday, Hélène Courvoisier

Direction and choreography: Annette Leday

Artists: Annette Leday, Hélène Courvoisier, Kalamandalam Unnikrishnan Nair, Sadanam Manikandan, Annette Leday

S.Thala is a dance performance inspired by Marguerite Duras’ Indian cycle. The creative process of S.Thala started in Kerala in December 2019 under the direction of Annette Leday, a French choreographer and dancer immersed in Indian and French theatrical and dance forms.

By revisiting Duras’ fantasized India in this cycle and the very real one at the heart of her company’s productions, Annette Leday and the dancers propose a poetic visual approach of Duras prose through a choreographed interpretation of her organic writing.

For Annette Leday, “creating a contemporary dance performance is a bit like writing a poem”. S.Thala focuses more on exploring the relationships and emotions of the “characters” and the emblematic atmospheres of Duras’ universe than on trying to reproduce or illustrate the complex narrative schemes of her texts.
