Planites, or how to dance migratory movements and all that ensues. Beginning with integration and – why not? – modern language.

“Opa!” – Greek for “hurray!” – shouted Patricia Apergi at the top of her voice in 2009, as if to find a sense of national pride in a country on its knees. The Greek choreographer, nurtured on the theatre, picks up where she left off. After the inside, the outside. This time, she embodies the Planites. Those who, like planets, are forever moving, strolling, migrating, trotting. Those who haul their luggage around and put it down here and there. Then what? Integrated or disintegrated luggage? Keep it? Throw it away? To give their account, the Aerites Dance Company soaked up flamenco in Barcelona, Celtic steps in Dublin, and African and Arab dances in France. But the aim was not to imitate folklore or technical prowess. “What interests me,” says Patricia Apergi, “is not so much what migrants bring with them as what the host society does with it. The way mixtures can produce a new language. How flamenco, with its gypsy roots, became a national product of Spain.”
Whereas in 2009, the dancers of Opa! were seeking their origins, those in Planites are wondering why and when they were adopted. The result: five dancers, five guys on fire, steeped in elsewhere for a journey going back and forth between traditional styles and a unique gestural language – all of it immersed in the chaos of urban life, wired to everyday life. Five bodies of the time, necessarily political.
