Tipperary Dance Creates

TD Creates hosts the choreographic work of Alexandre Iseli


Tempo Rubato

In 2023, Alexandre Iseli creates and directs Tempo Rubato, a new dance trio, in collaboration with a creative team from diverse art forms and backgrounds.

Tempo Rubato is a search for sanity, resisting the breakdown of a world that is witnessing the upheaval of its rhythms.

Stripped of complex production artefacts, Tempo Rubato finds its foundation in simple, structured choreography to put three female dancers at the heart of the matter, in charge. Starting from a single gesture, they gradually embrace a common flow and pulse, to populate space and time with a shared venture where unity is not to the detriment of individuals.

Tempo Rubato continues Iseli’s body of practice focused on interactions among people to recover the body as the core of our shared experience, and the complex balance between individual autonomy and collective structures.

Created during a residency at Aristea Litou Dance School in Ioannina, Greece, and at Ballyglass Country House in Co. Tipperary.
