The choreographer develops his intent, somewhat nebulous: “navigation in blind to the sun”. The first act, while the characters are not naked, looks like a repetition of his ballet Auguri . Rhythm always the same, the dancers walk swaying from one foot to the other, as if each of them was inhabited by two trends irreconcilable. Then, a thunderclap of light and sound wakes up the audience: the second act begins. We will then switch to a relative calm to outright hysteria.

Attention to the ears!

We should acknowledge the prowess of the dancers, as the choreography is physically demanding and difficult to remember. It is nice to see, but overall, it was tightened, would be likely to better his goal. Because between the intentions of the choreographer and what hold the spectators of the ballet, there is a gap. Finally, attention to the ears: bring earplugs because the sound level of the soundtrack is at times very violent.
