la traversee


"La Traversée" (the crossing) a performance in dance and objects theatre.

Two people go to a beach where they find a large transparent sheet. Attracted by this material, they begin to explore it. This invites them to dive into a journey in which this aerial and aquatic material, sometimes becomes an ally, sometimes an enemy.
This experience will transform them as well as their vision and their use of this element.

In a poetic and visual way, this piece evokes our relationship with plastic and the problem of pollution in our oceans.

 


This highly visual and graphic work produces a scenography that is always surprising and constantly evolving, because the main element remains the movement, both of the artists and of the material with which they evolve.

If we play indoors or in the evening outdoors, we use video projections and/or lighting on the plastic. This reinforces the poetic and dreamlike aspects of the piece, creating an extraordinary moment.
