Or the peregrinations of two plantigrades trying their hand at the art of conceptual dance. The performance rapidly turns to disaster. A collaboration with the Belgian dance company Mossoux-Bonté.

Nicole Mossoux is a choreographer so is Karine Ponties. It’s been a while since they know each other and they overlap their presence in festivals like the one of Brigittines, which has them on the bill regularly.

They are both fascinated by the works of artist like: Antony Gormley with his bronze figures, his relevant inks… Michel Sowa with his very human bestieres…

This last one is not absent of the project that gatters here a sweet and sour vision, of the aberration of finding himself there, exposed at glance.
