MULTIPLE POINTS OF EGRESS (on tour)

Dance/Music/Photography

Le chorégraphe John Bateman a choisi d’aborder ces questions et de traiter de ce besoin quasi permanent de l’être humain de vouloir fuir la situation dans laquelle il se trouve, à la recherche d’un nouvel état de plaisir. Le travail chorégraphique est créé en corrélation avec le travail musical de Babet (Dionysos), et la création vidéo de Daniel Nouraud, élément de la chorégraphie.
