Going up, going down, avoiding getting stuck between two floors. Making choices, good or bad, then changing one’s mind. To go back. To start again. To stop. The gears are rusted. But…there might be one way to make it work. The public is invited to experience a journey between several fragments of a story composed of contemporary jig and percussions. Social phobias are at the heart of this choreographic research. Sometimes humorous, sometimes cynical. Always epic.

“There will be repetition, backtracking […] but all revisited with an intelligence and logic that must be mentioned.”

– Jessica Perry, DFDANSE
