A choreographic piece proposed as part of the Festival Concordan(s)e

What can a body do? What can the world in the bodies? How to say the movements of the world in the articulations of the bodies?
How to enter between the body and the world, between the bodies of the world and the thoughts of the body?
What is a dance / writing combination? What is a material combination of body / words?

Mylène Benoit and Frank Smith meet, cross their practices and connect their concerns.This choreographic, textual and musical essay raises series of questions in order to reconcile the body of the dance and the body of writing.
