Aurelien Boy: Plexus description

Conceived by Aurélien Bory for the extraordinary Japanese dancer Kaori Ito,Plexus is a “jewel of optical theatre” (Le Monde) presented by Sadler’s Wells and London International Mime Festival.

Entrapped by five thousand cords, a forest of brilliantly lit strings, a warrior-woman conquers her environment so that she floats, like a black angel, in a sumptuous cage that she can only leave by vanishing completely.

Following his Olivier Award-nominated What’s Become of You? for flamenco dancer Stéphanie Fuster, Plexus is director Aurélien Bory’s latest portrait of a remarkable dancer. Kaori Ito trained in classical ballet in Japan and America, then came to Europe where she performed and choreographed with Philippe Decouflé, Angelin Preljocaj, Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui, James Thierrée, and Alain Platel’s les ballets C de la B. Aurélien Bory and Kaori Ito are two of Europe’s most exciting dance innovators; with lighting design by Arno Veyrat, sound byStéphane Ley and costumes by Sylvie Marcucci, Plexus is a revelation.
