Compagnie Auguste-Bienvenue

Compagnie Auguste-Bienvenue


Presentation of the show



We work on some material in order to write, leave and let people discover traces. Most of our movements leave some traces, but all of them are not visible to the naked eye. Our movements go across the space, fill it without necessarily leaving traces; and yet, one can generally foresee a way which can be remembered.

Do the energy and the softness that we can have, the caresses or the blows we can give or receive somewhere in the space leave some visible traces? If all of these tracks were visible, what kind of writing would appear right before our eyes?

With and upon which material?

Wouldn't the process of any dancer be to have a choreographic writing engraved on the floor?

A visible one likely to be read like an open book?
