Èbe is born out of a desire to stage phenomena that are beyond our grasp, yet still influence and guide us. Inspired by the movement and sounds of a chorus of accordion-robots – as if extra-human lungs – the piece explores tides, their incessant and vital fluctuation evoking a deep breath. The performer synchronizes her movement phrases with the instruments to examine the communicative dimension of breathing. She investigates the cracking and rubbing noises emitted by the accordions, and is influenced by the flamenco tradition. The piece explores a metaphoric question: what is revealed when the tide goes out? Kaléidoscope: Midway between dance and installation, this performance is a colorful and sensorial voyage in which bodies reveal their subconscious and fleeting dreams. The dancers navigate through various geometric positions with a gentle physicality. Spectators slip into a foggy and surreal universe with the help of kaleidescopic glasses whose lenses multiply images and alter their coloring.
