Glocal Dances is the name Anne Lise Le Gac and Élie Ortis have given to the collection of amateur dance videos they found on Facebook and Youtube. This has triggered an unending conversation about the largely unknown dance style grand mal, which mostly takes place online because Élie lives in Paris and Anne Lise in Marseille. But every now and then the two of them get together and present their digital “trashure box” packed with Michel de Montaigne quotes on a stage. Grand Mal becomes an enraptured dancefloor without reservation. A lonely hearts club that devotes itself unconditionally to the music of none other than the Italian dance king Gigi D’Agostino.
