Dance, Duo

A man-and-son duo question the notion of paternal bond and attempt a physical essay on filiation. Together, they explore the father figure and the child character without creating a specific storyline. They invite us into their relationship as they play games and dance around each other. Des gestes blancs reveal a tandem who explore the spaces between them, testing their limits through the imbalance of their respective strengths. It is a dance where the image of one is the reflection of the other, distorted in time and space.
