Alex Vantournhout’s seventh piece, in which two men, alone on the stage, display bodies stripped of any ornamentation: athletic, trained bodies, but bodies nonetheless, with all the unavoidable limitations they entail. The choreography plays with these differences of proportion and physical strength. The dancers seek equilibrium, balance and harmony, without ever forgetting a sense of humour.
