Marry me in Bassiani


Danseurs dans Marry Me in Bassiani de (LA)HORDE
75 min

In 2023, Dance Reflections by Van Cleef & Arpels is supporting the Théâtre de la Ville for the presentation of Marry Me in Bassiani by (LA)HORDE with the Iveroni Ensemble.

At a traditional wedding in Tbilisi where music and dance run wild, the bride rebels. The ceremony erupts into a techno party. A new Georgia is born!

This is the revival of a performance that made (LA)HORDE a legendary name. The unpredictable trio, already a leading influence, disappeared from the radar in 2018. Where were they hiding? In Tbilisi! And they return, to everyone’s surprise, with the Iveroni Ensemble, a troupe that fiercely embodies the values of an ancestral culture. However they did not by any means give up on tracking down the signs of youth in revolt they found in Bassiani, a techno-club with a reputation well beyond Georgia’s borders. The Iveroni sword-and-heel dance in traditional costume takes unprecedented liberties and becomes the reflection of a society in renewal.
