This piece for four performers by the emphatically European artist Marie Gourdain and the German Felix Baumann blends contemporary dance with physical theatre, and unfolds around the scenography. The principle is both simple and complex: on an unstable platform, have bodies be in constant motion, their flow of movements conditioning how they approach the space. This intensely physical confrontation between performers and materials gives rise to a sometimes absurd dramaturgical situation, which yields a distinctive gestural vocabulary.
