Fana Tshabalala / South Africa

The atmosphere groans and squeaks. Alone, a man lost in the vastness, turns, falling prey to what penalty, in the gloomy air. His mutations, in the darkness, never let up. He leads his legs with his rage. His arms, held like wings, take him forward into a vacuum where, seized with fear, he recalls the shadows of his body. Now he goes in fearful circles, desperate runs, and falls like a dead body. At the gates of Hell. With his clear and rather spirited movements, Fana Tshabalala puts his signature to this simple and poignant piece, while continuing as a performer in the South African company Moving into Dance. He also spent six months with the Michel Kélémenis company, where he played Anatom in L’Amoureuse de Monsieur Muscle. Gates of Hell 1 is his third choreographic work.
