En encounter between dance and paper, where luminous forms become new territories, haunting sculptures that breathe.
Cocons somatiques is imbued with a sub-aquatic metaphor, with bodies cohabiting the stage space with cocoons, strange organic sculptures that bewitch and transform them, aided by visual and poetic intrigues created by the visual artist Manon De Pauw, and brought to life in danced metamorphoses by Pierre-Marc Ouellette. From this transformation emerge silhouettes and identities, sired by strangeness and mystery.
