Since Charlie Hebdo, daily life poet Nadia Vadori-Gauthier has cast a pink filter over the world by dancing one minute of life a day. Pink like the tip of her long eloquent hair. Micadanses celebrated this beautiful form of resistance last Saturday with the first edition of festival dedicated to micro-performances, a way to remember, life, love, go on.

In-between screenings, Nadia invited « dancers, performers, but also friends ». Daniel Larrieu hypnotized with the tip of his fans, the (very young) La Ville en Feu collective revisited a brilliant and daring Rite of Spring, Mathieu Patarozzi (imperial on Thomas Lebrun’s dance floor) timed his passage with his phone and off he went, Jeanne Alechinsky was overwhelming in a sequin micro-skirt, Margaux Amoros got away from some far west ghost town to bewitch Théo Lawrence’s voice and guitar.

As an illustration to her words about memory, her Polaroïds in her hand, Nadia reinterpreted her own dance number 363, which took place the night of January 11 2016 place de la République under a pouring rain.

Minute by minute, dance finally runs through the stone.
