Les Oiseaux

2014

“An overexposed internal journey, a body envelope that twitches, folds, spreads its wings and closes its surface in absence; Les Oiseauxtake the one who lets himself be crossed to the origins of the dance.”

Marie-Juliette Verga, Ballroom

“Each gesture, each sound is chosen, which in no way detracts from the freedom of each one, in a back that stretches to touch the ground, an arm that rests on the air as if it found support there. They chatter as they rustle.”

Marie-Christine Vernay, Libération
