I would like to be a tree for a while…
He towers, and I sit and feel safe.
A danced duet, where shadow and light flirt with bodies transported by ethnic colored musics. The union of tradition and modernity is the topic of this choreography. Created for children and grown-ups alike.
Roots, trunk, branches, sap, bark, leaves : small tree will grow tall.
Feet, legs, chest, head, blood, skin, hand, hair : small human being will grow tall.
Friend and partner, the tree has always been wise, and we have alway known its wisdom. Over the ages, through civilizations, the tree murmurs music with contrasting rhythms, combining all the melodies of all the countries on our planet Earth.
