Anatomies

 

A few words about the show:

Five bodies in movement revealing the mechanical precision of the human anatomy. In a space stripped of all décor, three women and two men give themselves up to a wave of movement, sometimes slow, sometimes fast, but always clean and precise. Graphic and incisive. In solos and trios, in duos and a quintet, the bodies dance the silence of an interior peace. They are living channels for a meditation in movement. They are agents of humanity.
