How can I talk to you about this relationship? It is so strong. We are both objects, objects in contact that keep merging as if we were necessarily bound.
I love to describe this connection, to tell you how our bodies are touching one another, how our feelings intertwine, run riot and become empty. I want to question what we are and what this relation tells about us.
This set design is made of seven “telephonic mobile perfusions’’. These are luminous and autonomous supports, activated by the dancers. This show questions Smartphone addiction and its “second brain” role in our life. It also deals with religion, loneliness, individualism, sense of perfection and gender relations.
