Aube

In a physical and visual space delicately delineated, dancers enter and exit, indistinguishable from one another. The soundscape is intriguing, contact between performers sensitive, subtle, precarious. Aube raises questions on identity and the necessary yet impossible communion. It draws us into a poetic universe, in which bodies and shapes materialize and synchronize, all in the gentle glow of dawn.
