In sociopolitically and economically unstable times, when we are more and more left with the feeling as if someone is pulling the rug from under our feet, the piece created by choreographer Aline Landreau, explores both the feelings of losing ground and of finding it back, in focusing on the different notions of fundament and (under)ground. The constant interweaving between the two dancing bodies – negotiating between the vertical and the horizontal, between impetus and sagging, fight and alliance – and the vibrant soundscape, a constantly modulating network of lights and an elusive presence of falling particles, are revealing our seeking for a common and stable ground.
