Faced with the tumult of the world and the prospect of its possible collapse, Laurence Yadi and Nicolas Cantillon consider movement in a different way. They need confrontation, interaction, and questions. Accompanied in their research by a combat arts coach, they have appropriated the techniques of MMA.
In a razor-sharp world that leaves a lot of room to choreographic improvisation, they lead their six dancers in a common struggle. Bodies intermingle and come face to face, looks meet with defiance, the dancers turned fighters encourage each other at times, and often clash. Against a backdrop of quasi-permanent tension, they push their limits and put their bodies at the service of an endless struggle.
Coming from contemporary or urban dance backgrounds, their six performers have their own body practices. They share with the choreographers a common vital force that limitlessly expresses itself on stage.
