The threaded silken self

2013 | A dance and circus project, for 4 interpreters on floor, rope and tight wire, from 5 years old, 50 min.

What binds and connects us ? Relationships are not random events left to chance. Our experience tells us that we either walk together or we part ways.

As a Calder mobile, formed by the tight wire, rope and the interpreters, the scenes created on stage tirelessly weave links between spaces and beings, always seeking balance in face of imbalance. A threaded silken self moves towards the one, or towards the many that bind us together to weave, unweave and recreate relationships over space and time.
Four artists – dancers and circus performers, form a team of « me » to speak of a « self » between « us » and « you » – large and small ones without exception.
Suspended between Heaven and Earth, we embark on a discovery of a new space of freedom.
