BiT is Maguy Marin’s 49th show in a career that has spanned over 40 years.
Obsessively, the dancers – individuals belonging to a society of disparate emotions – surrender to movements without stopping, creating a dance that is both collective and individual, two intertwined aspects that are never clearly distinguished. Rhythms become ritual-like, not forgotten in time, reminiscent of traditional dances and ancestral rituals, some of them macabre. A constant movement leading to physical and mental strain, creating dance’s dominance over individual lives (could this be the metaphor by which to analyse modern society more effectively?). One fact we are certain of: BiT takes us to the depths of our humanity and questions our individual responsibilities in our current collective agitation. 

MAGUY MARIN • At 66 years of age, and a career of over 40 years, Maguy Marin was born in Toulouse, France, to a family of Spanish refugees. Influenced by the works of Samuel Beckett and a disciple of Béjart, in the 80s Maguy began to produce choreographies in France similar to those created at the same time in Germany by Pina Bausch: a dance theatre revealing our true humanity. She recently won the Golden Lion Award for Lifetime Achievement at the Venice Biennale in Italy.
