Release : June 2023

A choreographic exploration of the relationship between time and space, using an experimental, evolving sculptural device.

This vertiginous show features two dancers and an acrobat, inhabiting a unique and odd space that they’ll have fun exploring… This new world offers an ideal, kaleidoscopic playground. Balanced choreography is followed by rebounds, falls, suspensions and other light-hearted artistic outbursts.

When this world comes to life, perspectives multiply, the metronome mast beats the time and everything accelerates!

A choreographic exploration with many twists and turns, Lemniscate invites everyone to built an imaginary. It’s the poetic framework of a story with countless possibilities.

Transport : 
Impressive in its size and the number of technical possibilities it offers, the Lemniscate set has been designed by the company to be light and easy to assemble and disassemble. From the very start of any creation, we work meticulously to design sculptural objects that are as aesthetically surprising as they are technically agile. For example, Lemniscate’s scenography is transported by a simple van and a small trailer. It’s an efficient way for the company to limit its impact on the environment, and to be able to perform in a wide variety of spaces in an eco-responsible way.
