The Nature of Intimacy

In The Nature of Intimacy, the choreographer brings together four dancers, a soprano singer and two musicians around the work of Francesca Caccini, an Italian composer and singer of the 17th century. Transported by the beauty of the vocal writing, each gesture becomes a caress, each palm becomes an offering.

Formless Mirror (she who reveals)

What is being a man, or, in these times, becoming one?

4 dancers, 4 men give to see and feel, in body and soul, in a disarming sincerity of offering, the masculine vulnerabilities, where the History unlearned us to flush them out, nor to take care of them; in a time, also, ours, where “to be born man” does not mean that one becomes it any more. 
(Quote from “The Second Sex”, Simone de Beauvoir, 1949) – Céline Rallet

Tower speaks

TOWER SPEAKS is a dialogue between two bodies, a dialogue in between the music and the dance, a dialogue between two characters, a dialogue in between a man and a woman, a dialogue in between mind and soul. Floating in an atmosphere full of misery, the dancers are able to build a new dimension of a relationship.
