The project

A few guitar notes, and two women come together in the middle of the audience.

They get closer, look at each other, embrace, climb, propel, and whirl. This proximity and the subtle presence of the musician create an intimate space in which the two acrobats gradually reveal the potential of their bodies, the trust and the complicity that nourish their relationship, their experiences.

Drawing from dance and circus arts, they take turns being bases and flyers, defying stereotypes to express a sensitive strength without artifice.
