Duet of 30 min

"The artist’s energy and momentum created by the apparatus is setting the architecture and the city in motion. Caught up in the movement, the dancer see the city whirls around him. I’ve already experimented this experience as dancer and I wish to renew it from my choreographer and set designer point of view. Today, I don’t want only dance in the city but also make the city dancing."
Fabrice Guillot

The two dancers move into a chase game that goes from the wall to the void, from the elastic to the rope. In this three-dimensional space, the trajectories fork at any time thanks to the use of different apparatus. We follow the energetic and surprising play of the two dancers, mischievous, accomplices or rivals. Their races cross, dodge, separate then, bring back a moment the bodies in contact.

The apparatus as a part of body
The apparatus are composed at once of solid and soft materials. Dancer’s performance and bodies draw at once regulars, asymmetric, round and vertical lines. The work in the void will be made thanks to an object composed of a rigid bar and a flexible jump pole, ropes and elastics. Like an extension of the body, this apparatus stretches, contracts and articulates at the same time as the dancers playing. Just like the skeleton composed with rigid parts articulated and allow the movement.
