S.Thala – An Indian Suite

“S.Thala” is an imaginary city by Marguerite Duras. The title is strangely close to the Sanskrit term sthala, which means location. For Duras, places are very important and come with the possibility of a past and therefore “ghosts from the past.”

The playwright often mixes her own personal environment with her imaginary location. The place that concerns Duras in the so-called Indian Cycle is a forgotten, rejected, suffering, and an unmanageable world of natives kept on a leash by the white colonials. Duras’ link to nature echoes today’s concerns and carries the apocalyptic anguish that goes with our time.

The choreography presents a first period of movement and space exploration inspired by the many physical indications and themes contained in Duras texts. These dance modules are accompanied by the reading of short passages from the text “L’Amour.” In the second period, dancers perform an elaborate piece constructed and extrapolated from the first part explored figures and recurring elements.
