A theatre of movements, a taciturn dance, words to divert a situation.
Let’s juxtapose the pathways of migrating birds with the routes of colonisation.
Let’s suppose that a history of feathers might be a metaphore of history of men and women.
The ironi of the object : the feather is a symbol of richness since the Renaissance and at the same time, this object means flying away towards liberty, capable to cross all frontiers.
A crossroad of easthetics, where the exuberance from art history meets contemporary minimalisme, where a man is reduced to a simple line, a shadow.
There is a direct dialogue inbetween performers and the audience. We will share our theories, our doubts and try to have a look upon ourselves, europeans of today.
Feather Land is supported by l'Incubateur des Chorégraphes and la Fabrique de la Danse.
