Pauline Thomas puts the spotlight on two
duos. The first pair is a couple whose lives are unfurled in five key moments,
a nod to François Ozon’s movie “5x2”. They are enclosed in a narrow space, unaware
of the public surrounding them. They recreate the rituals of couple life within
these few square meters.
However, does a man/woman duo always have to result in love?
The second duo is portrayed in ten
abstract pieces backed by blaring music: White Stripes, Fleetwood Mac (two
groups formed by couples!), Olafur Arnalds and Perfume Genius. Ten pieces, like
ten slivers of life, both simple and complex, composed or explosive.
The performance is an attack on the
senses, a dance depicting the ambiguity of relationships.
