SHAZAM VERSION 21

 

Frames abound in this Shazam, a tribute to the cinema art : suspended screens with film sequences, mirrors reflecting bodies above the silhouettes, or creating multiple bodies, transforming the dancers into hypnotic images, with their reflections getting lost in electric blue. A veritable vertigo of stage representations. Shazam utters the magic word “abracadabra”, and turns each number into a trick, where, as the tableaux go by, a dancer, facing the audience, provides us with a moment of irony and vagabond humor.
