Space turn by turns poetic, energetic, ironic, Au Fait ...? combines the gesture with the word, enchains full and empty without a declaration of meaning, leaving what the writer wanted to say free of any interpretation.
Dance fragments and puns, individualities and collective frescoes question beyond established codes.
Each dancer is a universe by himself, borrowing from cartoon, ethnic, underground, crossing the masculine and the feminine, one and diversity.
A strange in camera that is seen between the bodies, between the notes, between the words and in which the movement and the emotion between the dancers appears as a breeze.
While a digital sound and light device abolishes the borders between the board and the control room.

« By the way what did the author mean? » favors the exchange an the crossing of forms of expression. To transcribe the work of an author and enter the dance of word, the universes meet, collide, oppose.
La voix du nord - September 2013
Throughout the performance, universes will oppose, mix, twist, and not blend, but create a new universe with its own characteristics that generates its own poetry.
Shifts occur, decompartmentalization are made.
No heaviness in this inventory “à la Prévert”.
