Learn to conciliate oppositions


to reconcile the implacable

Au Contraire


(After Jean-Luc Godard)

Under the influence of Jean-Luc Godard, this play of dance was developed in the style of shooting a movie by using certain characteristic elements of cinema being made.

The theme of this “choreography in shooting” is the meeting: possible and impossible meetings between persons and states, desired and undesired meetings between opposites, meetings between arts and manners…

Learn to conciliate oppositions, to reconcile the implacable…

We work on uncultivated (neglected) fields, where the codes of representations can be questioned without putting the transgression in the center of the debate.

At our level, we activate the desire to abolish the frontiers.

Let us set the sweetness of relations against the violence of separations!
