4 dancers and a group of inhabitants – Participatory show for public space
(outdoor, by night, 45 min )
Dancers and circus artists, along with inhabitants, will form a group sharing a playful and rigorous vertical ritual.
All the stages and gestures are the inner workings of a collective organisation where each action and individual are essential.
The work of light guides the gaze in a spatial reading of the site by zoom on an isolated action in a vacuum that widens from one to embrace the entire space.
All the steps and gestures of this construction are the workings of a collective organization where each action, each individual is indispensable, and the basic tool is the ladder. Ladders are our crossing tools. They allow us to rise from the ground and redesign the play area.
