Artistic statement

« le syndrome ian – the last of three pieces investigating anonymous dance practices facing the notion of authorship – welcomes clubbing and nightlife memories.
It is neither a tribute nor a reconstruction. 1979, first time clubbing. As the planet vibrates to the sound of disco with its followers, lovers of an undulating, haunting dance, England sees the emergence of a dark, poetic dance set to the rhythm of electric, angular, jerking bodies. Halfway between isolation and community, what traces of these (possibly) contradictory bodies are left today as we still try, whatever happens, to dance among the ruins of a night that is forever lost? 
le syndrome ian brings together 9 dancers as part of a collective vibration where the tempo is divided between the physicality of sub-bass sounds and the melodic wailing echoing Ian Curtis’ poetry. » 
Christian Rizzo - May, 2016
