In a red scene, the “Master of interdictions” defines the space’s limits.
This is the wall, the wall of the house of interdictions: who enters this place must respect the interdictions ordered by the Master.
And so, what can we do? … jump, slide, roll, dance…
Two dancers explore their bodies’ limits, through their weight, their elasticity, their shapes in the space. They face the interdiction, changing a simple gesture in dance or transforming a word in a sound.
Thanks to the interdictions we can be more creative and find new solutions. That’s why the show is so involving for children: they can learn how to approach an obstacle, a problem, a limitation.
The prohibition is a draft, a lightning, a craziness or a song of the “Fairy of Possibilities”, who makes us do things we’ve never thought of.
