I SEW FOR YOU. FROM THE HEART, I OFFER IT TO YOU.
 
A man with a golden lower lip is dancing in a stage set of colourful threads. He seems intent on amazing his audience like a fairground magician. Large sewing needles are dangling from the threads, and it is with these that a story begins. It refers to the biblical figure Dorcas (or Tabitha in Aramaic) who was known for her generosity and helpfulness: she took care of the poor by handing out clothes. She died of an unknown disease but Peter the Apostle brought her back to life. Jan Fabre makes Italian dancer Matteo Seddaslip into the role of Dorcas and, through the ritual of dance, lets him enter into a higher state of being that recalls the resurrected one. For Fabre and Sedda the generosity of Dorcas is the starting point in their research of the vibrating body, the body in ecstasy.
“The Generosity of Dorcas” is one of the grand solo pieces that the multitalented artist Jan Fabre has created for his “warriors of beauty”, as he calls his dancers. Regardless of how diverse these performances are, Jan Fabre essentially always wants to pay tribute to the performer. With this solo, he honours the generosity Matteo Sedda. For Fabre Sedda is a performer of untamable energy and high kinetic intelligence who charmingly and generously welcomes the audience in his imaginary world.
