Immersing my heart in a past of sorrow Photo: Algaé Bory AURÉLIEN BORY Born in 1972, is director of Compagnie 111, founded in 2000 and located in Toulouse. He develops a physical theatre singular and hybrid, a crossbreeding between different converging fields in the performing arts (theatre, circus, dance, the visual arts, music). His shows tour all around the world and this international notoriety began with Plan B (2003) and Plus ou moins l infini (2005), created in collaboration with Phil Soltanoff. Azimut is inspired by Moroccan acrobatics, nine years after Taoub (2004), the show which founded Le Groupe acrobatique de Tanger. His interest in science influences his aesthetic. s works are driven by the question of space and leans on the scenography. His theatrical work is developed through the renewal of the form and by leaving room for the audience s imagination. In 2008 was the recipient of the Créateur sans frontiers (Creator Without Borders) trophy. LE GROUPE ACROBATIQUE DE TANGER Le Groupe Acrobatique de Tanger was formed at the initiative of Sanae El Kamouni in Her aim was to initiate Tangiers acrobats to new circus routines, based on Morocco s unique tradition of acrobatics, with its own special history, practised to a very high standard by numerous troupes and families. Convinced that a new history could be invented with these performers, she asked director to devise the first contemporary Moroccan acrobatics show in Tangiers. Taoub was created in June 2004 and has been a resounding success worldwide ever since, with more than 300 performances to its credit. Le Groupe Acrobatique de Tanger then met with the Swiss directors Martin Zimmermann and Dimitri de Perrot, who created Chouf Ouchouf for them in 2009, boosting the group s fame among the public and theatres. In 2013, the Groupe Acrobatique de Tanger worked again with on his new creation Azimut. DIRECTOR S NOTE Moroccan acrobats are called the children of Sidi Ahmed Ou Moussa. He was an eminent 16th century Sufi thinker, whose grave has become a pilgrimage shrine. He is regarded as the Patron Saint of Moroccan acrobatics. Initially, these acrobatics performances are not considered as being a part of performing arts: they are closely related to Sufism, they emerged from ancient Berber ritual practises and they consist of circular and pyramidal stunts, in which I perceive both celestial and maternal representations. In Sufism, an ontological quest, the concept of the path is essential. Azimut (Azimuth in English) derives from the Arabic As-samt (Sumùt in the plural, meaning the paths ). Azimut is the term used in astronomy to describe the angle between the observer and the celestial bodies. With this meaning, the sky is summoned. In the legend of Sidi Ahmed Ou Moussa, when the wise man reached the heavens, he looked back at earth and men, and settled upon going back. Among others, his path led me to embrace the return motif as the core of the writing. I liked the idea of the return to mother-earth, a return where birth and death are intermingled: by its very nature, a return used as the compass life. I like pondering these verses by T.S. Eliot: We shall not cease from exploration And the end of all our exploring Will be to arrive where we started Image Credit: Algae Bory GET FRONT AND CENTRE The Advertiser takes you behind the scenes to bring you the news and reviews you need to make the most of this year s Adelaide Festival.
