Auguri deals with the search for happiness. Olivier Dubois explores the fate of humanity in dance. Analogous to the ancient practice of ornithomancy, which reads the future from the flight of birds, Olivier makes the stage an oracle of humanity. To do this, he lets his 22 dancers jump, run and hunt across to the energetic, symphonic music of François Caffenne. By using an extremely physical movement vocabulary and precise construction, great choreographic images emerge between utopia and warning in which a panorama of human existence unfolds.
Auguri is an invitation to follow the momentum of our destinies and the comprehension of humanity as a secret organization. In our dynamic, our trajectories we will find the world’s future. It is a mystical theorem.
– Olivier Dubois
Auguri is the last part of his trilogy “Étude critique pour un trompe l’oeil”.
