The simplicity of the set emphasizes the two fundamental elements of this piece : the music, magnetically omnipresent, emerging live from Raphaëlle LATINI’s turntables, and the tormented, contorted body of Samuel LEFEUVRE.
Industrial, metallic and repetitive sounds fill a space bathed in a fading light, driving through moments of total darkness. Gradually we begin to see a white-clad body, trying valiantly to pull itself away from the ground. The dancer straightens up— imperceptibly, awkwardly — as though bombarded by electric waves, a somewhat dysfunctional robot.
The frail verticality the dancer achieves becomes a symbol of resilience, the incarnate image of that which drives humans and makes them stand up again and again, until the end.
