There, on the cliff, they are numerous,
it’s an above-ground people,
there are rocks, humans, animals.
Life is still here,
life and its nooks and crannies, its half floors.
In the background, there are mirages, trapdoors and passages.
The cliff is the point of vertigo, it’s pushing the limits to feel alive,
it’s like an inner mountain to climb,
being in the cliff, in the mass, in the flesh,
scratch into solid, try to transform what doesn’t move.
In the corner, overthere, behind, at the back, there is still a dream.

In group work, we base ourselves on the idea that what is at stake is not the “what” but the “how”. Indeed, trying to develop a team capacity to adapt and transform without trying to make everyone look alike, is a constant challenge.
Seeking to push the possibilities of each artist further, seeking to expose everyone, requires working with confidence, to allow real risk-taking.
To make small ceremonies to be together, it is to dance, to catch up, to be carried in a common pulsation.
Choir work should be like a base that recharges individuals.
In the work on movement, we will continue this research around the rite, the trance, when the group is one, united by the same energy, when the movement gives vertigo and plunges the group into the same momentum.

The scenography work will be important on this part of the project, to create a universe where people and animals can move freely, appear and disappear.
We will try to create a space on several levels, to allow the acrobats to evolve on descents, falls, slides, but also to allow the birds and the horse to be free on stage.
We will continue the research around the white and the black, the walls of the scenography will make it possible to seek that the walls leave traces on the bodies and that the bodies trace on the walls.
