Mind the Gap

2019
Mind the Gap
Satchie Noro, dancer, Dimitri Hatton, circus artist and clown, Samuel Dutertre, dancer, and Silvain Ohl, builder, come together to create Mind the gap, a stunning choreographic piece based on an unstable installation.
With its alternating construction and deconstruction, turbulent floor space and vertical axes, the scenography of Mind the Gap is an architectural space with precarious balancing points. A rugged yet teetering tower throws its menacing silhouette into the heart of an urban cityscape.
Entering into contact with it are three figures who move carefully yet audaciously, bursting forth with healthy solidarity. The slightest movement on their part could upset the structure’s entire balance of power, a structure in a state of perpetual collapse.
At the heart of this avalanche of matter, they are twisting, bending, falling, gathering themselves again, catching themselves, adapting to the impossible, searching for a subtle equilibrium of masses. 
The three performers are simultaneously operators of this curious installation and actors within it. They engage in acts of bravery: plugging the gaps, piling up the scattered debris, erecting dikes.
Shaping the surrounding chaos in order, perhaps, to build a better world. After all, why not?
