FuittFuitt – which stands for “between” – is a dance technique that invites the body to continuously and endlessly unravel. Created by Laurence Yadi and Nicolas Cantillon, the duo comprising Compagnie 7273, it was inspired by a device in Arab music.

Maqâm is a “tonal-spatial factor,” or a set of musical notes and the relationship between them. To find an original way of playing the Maqam requires both rigor and imagination, where musicians express themselves by playing in-between the notes.

Laurence Yadi and Nicolas Cantillon transferred this technique into the body, enabling movements to weave into each other in a wavy, spiraled and hypnotic dance. This style is at the origin of the duo’s choreographic research since they first came together in 2003, and is what they call the ‘Multi styles FuittFuitt.’

“TODAY” PERFORMANCE & FUITTFUITT WORKSHOP

Dancer Laurence Yadi will present a 40-minute solo dance performance. By exploring musical representation in body movement, and turning the body into a melodic song, Yadi transcribes for audiences a world of emotions kept secret. This dance is a battle in its own way. The only guideline for the performer is to respect the instructions of the choreographers: to bend and never break.

THE CHOREOGRAPHERS

Laurence Yadi and Nicolas Cantillon created Compagnie 7273 in 2003. Throughout their career they created about 20 pieces: from silent ones to danced-concerts, from duets to group pieces, all of which toured internationally (Africa, Asia, United-states, Europe, Middle-East, North Africa and Russia).

The choreographers regularly offer workshop sessions in Switzerland and abroad. They are also invited to teach the Multi styles Fuittfuitt to young dancers in professional training schools. In 2014, they published a book – a diary for some, or guide on the practice of the Multi styles Fuittfuitt for others. Laurence Yadi and Nicolas Cantillon have won several awards, notably the Swiss Prize for Dance and Choreography and the Fondation Liechti for the Arts.
