a different kind of space
last month, in January 2021, we had the chance to be in residency on MARS with our project DEHORS EST BLANC – a choreographic installation, exploring movement in a different range and density.
this time we decided to invite a third performer in and asked Sergi Parés to join us and he definitely rocked it. Unfortunately we couldn’t make a public showing as initially planned, but we were lucky enough to share the outcome with a professional public. it was crucial for us, to understand how to invite the observer into this experience and this sharing gave us important feedbacks on how to go on…
at this moment we are looking for more residency time, as well as co-productions to support us financially, in order to develop further the choreographic and dramaturgic writing.

Research – A Very Eye
Finally back to the studio ! We were extremely grateful to our residency partners, who made it possible for us to pick up the physical work again. So we have spent 4 exciting and intense weeks in the CDCN Le Gymnase – Roubaix (FR), Grand Studio in Brussels (B) and KANAL – Centre Pompidou Brussels (B). THANK YOU for this precious time ! We are now recharging, working through the endless hours of videomaterial and getting prepared for the next and last part of the research period for this project, happening in October 2020 in Les Brigittines (B).
Stay tuned …
On the 3rd and 4th March we had our last performance of The Gyre, in Brest at the Festival Dansfabrik. The energy was high, the public was enthusiastic, the encounters were rich and warm, we did a training with over 100 motivated movers of all ages, the press was present and even did our first company photoshoot and we were full on ready to take off for the coming spring performances… but unfortunately the world had other plans for us…
Unfortunately all our spring and summer performances have been cancelled, but thanks to our great and supporting partners, we were not left hanging, and many of those performances will be rescheduled
(check the agenda).
THANK YOU !!
Back to Iran
One year later, after having performed The Gyre in Tehran, we went back with the plan to shoot a dancefilm based on this performance in the Aanarak desert : This project has been realized in collaboration with Mohammad Abbasi (choreographer and festival director) and filmmaker Amin Bagheri.
More news coming soon, the film is getting edited….
