Everything starts with a Yin moment…
In this performance, we will contradict ourselves
We will seek to make the invisible visible,
To share what’s happening inside with the outside.
We will make silence resonate
and share a taste of eternity in less than an hour. Bodies will constantly turn. And yet, at times, they will be still. In this duet, we will be three.
Juggling will be present.
