Anne-Marije van de Bersselaar signs the dramaturgy of this piece, conceived by choreographer Joost Vrouenraets, who considers that dance is a spiritual vision transformed into a physical from. Five women embark on a pursuit of absolute perfection exploring the boundaries of their own physicality. An aesthetic world soon makes way for an absurd and disillusioned tableau of battle, pain and conflict.
Dancers: Maïté Guérin, Francesca Imoda, Roshanak Morrowatian, Marika Meoli and Marcia Liu

Meeting you was Fate
Théâtre du Corps Pietragalla-Derouault
In this show created by and for Marie-Claude Pietragalla and Julien Derouault, the choreographers deal with the memory that dissolves, leaving space for the memory of the soul.
Meeting you was fate. It was an intimate journey, an exploration of the loving connection between two beings: a work about the present, the stability and change of feelings created by their own volatility.

Onassis Cultural Centre Athens
The choreography by Christos Papadopoulos aims to foreground the minimal, the ecstatic serenity, like that crack through which light enters before the splendour of the skies is revealed to us. Christos Papadopoulos focuses on the repetitiveness of kinetic motifs, on stage space clarity formed by lighting and action itself.
