Claudio Cangialosi - Creature
Creature is a fascinating character because he has so many facets. He is treated badly and is very tormented. He also has a certain schizophrenia. Everything could also be happening in his head. He is not sure whether he sees what he sees, whether he feels what he feels. At the same time, he is a childlike figure. He is naive. No one has ever touched him. When Marie does give him attention, he thinks it could be the start of something more. Not something sexual - he is not like that at all - but he is raving about what it would be like to have a relationship. And as a result, he loses the pedals when Marie approaches.
Like Giselle, Creature really tells a story and I love that kind of performance immensely. In Giselle, I danced Albrecht and I completely lost myself on stage. I love Akram Khan's work because of his attention to detail and especially the intention behind every movement. Akram does such fascinating things choreographically, but what makes his movements especially strong is that you perform each gesture for a reason. It is not movement for the sake of movement. Everything has meaning.
