Behind closed doors, two “soldiers of a paper army” are overwhelmed by sheets after sheets of paper spewed out by a machine whose incongruous logic escapes us. Papers bearing orders, the order of things, the things of life. A “face to face” in a world of gestures, but where occasional words come along to remind us that they do in fact have some meaning. In this duo, at once absurd and joyous, visual theatre and a theatre of objects are counter-balanced by a dance of great power.

 

“ "Unusual but familiar" describes this choreography, on the surface simple, but borrowing from mime, from wrestling, from juggling, and from theatre. The ‘everyday’, tinged with poetry and danced with great skill by these two polyvalent dancers." - Micheline Servin – Les Temps Modernes
