The contrasts that emerged when the Italian choreographer Chiara Frigo met the Quebec choreographer Emmanuel Jouthe led to the creation of When We Were Old. Their energies mingle together in this two-hander as they confront, nourish and contaminate each other. Two distinct individuals engage in a dialogue, and are united by dance. They discuss bygone days, the new replacing the old, the need to destroy in order to rebuild. Linked by Laurent Maslé’s sound environment, two separate physical styles, two individuals from unrelated cultures give birth to a new poetry, a hybrid language of unsuspected richness.
