Engrenage³

Véronique Giasson

Engrenage³ is a project combining video and dance created in collaboration with the director Étienne Cantin and the Aix composer LACRYMOBOY.

This choreographic work, built in a unique context, reflects this new rhythm of life that has been imposed on the collective in recent months.

Caught in a dance that is regulated like a clock, the three performers move through the soundtrack within this uncluttered circular place, in a world where human contact has been swept away with the back of the hand.

Together, they increase in power and volume to deliver gestures that are both mechanical and unbridled.
