Fampitaha, Fampita, Fampitàna

dance
25—29.05.2024

Fampitaha, fampita, fampitàna means comparison, transmission and rivalry in Malagasy. On the stage, four bodies challenge each other, choose each other and purge themselves of the (layers of) violence that constitute them.

The second chapter of a diptych begun with her radio creation Rouge Cratère (Red Crater), choreographer Soa Ratsifandrihana searches for a vocabulary between bodies and history to understand what links them and what sets them apart. Soa has teamed up with guitarist Joël Rabesolo and performers Audrey Merilus and Stanley Ollivier to build a new alterity in which bodies emerge from their silence by offering themselves the possibility of language. 
FFF is presented as a rediscovered line of dialogue between the children of diasporas and their places of origin. A plural narrative in which the shattering of these experiences is as vibrant as their reappropriation.

Written out before us is the story of bodies that would never have left their islands, and which, together, are fashioning a parade against exile.
 

Soa Ratsifandrihana is a Franco-Malagasy dancer and choreographer based in Brussels. After dancing for several years with Rosas, Soa presents her first solo in Brussels, entitled g r oo v e. The show has been performed over forty times and continues to tour, including at Kaaitheater. Her work reminds us that our bodies, just like our words, are bearers of stories, and that however we communicate them, they must be told. Soa is an associate artist of Kaaitheater from 2023 to 2025.
