Duet – Architectural dance (outdoor, by day, 25 min)

This choreographic piece for two dancers is a confrontation with solid. This material can be the other one, but also the wall can be, which supports their evolution, or also the void, less palpable but as well existing, visible and concrete.

At first, body extracts from the building, it becomes visible and comes off it. It faces the solid elements that are walls, but also the other one, identical and so different. A fun and combative struggle is taking place between architecture, void and the body searching to extract, at first with fierce will and then with vital necessity. The body becomes light and more and more aerial. It touches weightlessness to eventually adopt it and create vivid and happy games.

To question its environment
Our dance comes up against environment, everytime rediscovered. Dancers draw lines, show spaces, create new flows… Bodies are in suspension.Choreographic movement articulates, it offers new visions to visited spaces. Aerial void is a place of circulation which opens each one’s imaginary.
