Dance and sound performance in collaboration with Juliette Francine Frenay

This performance explores the possibilities of communication between two languages: movement and sound.
Starting from the acoustic phenomenon of beating, both performers initiate an intimate dialogue, an attempt to understand each other, to join, to adjust.
Juliette’s curvature is accentuated, the beat is still audible.
The body twists slowly while a descending melodic profile is heard in a slow panning from left to right.
Silence. Balance. Tension. Breaking point. The sound granulates and scatters. Juliette has fallen to the ground.
