Duration 1h

Circus and dance - aerial duo

Show for the hall

The company is starting a new sequence on human relations. The first part, Éther, is an exploration of interpersonal mechanisms involving two characters behind closed doors in the process of "making contact". This serves as a basis for a playful performance that takes various forms, physically, emotionally and spaciously speaking.

While Fractales investigated the adversity of a group facing the elements, Éther delves into the intervals that regulate the imposed sharing of a territory. A topic extremely relevant today: having to chose between fighting against each other, supporting each other, keeping our distance or merging. What options do we have?

 

Two planets between heaven and earth. In a lunar scenery, two entities facing and mirroring each other. Two creatures exploring the range of possibilities in terms of relationships, alternately allies, ennemies, sisters and strangers. Experiencing the whole variety of feelings caused by their being compelled to share a territory, either they transform the space or they are transformed by the space. At times in unity, at times in conflict, the two women reflect our fears and mutual attraction. The Other is considered a myth or, on the contrary, a natural element, to be perceived with peaceful simplicity. A fascinating contradiction that all of us face constantly.
