Lance Moi En l’Air

Joli Vyann

Circus, Dance, Theatre

Lance Moi En l’Air, choreographed by Florence Caillon with original music by Xavier Demerliac, (L’Attirail) is about the sensitivity and connection between two people, which brings about compatible contradictions. Can we be strong whilst relaxed? Heavy whilst light, grounded whilst levitated, submissive whilst in control, a mixture of strength and weakness, can we be dropped into the air? Humanity emerges and acrobatic prowess speaks between bodies. In a mixture of abandonment and accountability, this piece is sensitive, where bodies just fit together.
