The work will consist in a body-research focused on two states ; rest and alert. We will explore the frontiere between these two states, and the possibility to go from one to another as much as we like and with no care of incoherence. The principles for the choreography, and also for the sound, are based on the composition of a symphony. The bodies of the dancers will be painted as if they wore clothes: the idea is to create the illusion that they are both naked and dressed. Bodies seem to be dressed and socialy-correct but you can see better the details of the movements and the skin creasing and stretching. The space is made of walls with openings, kind of doors, and the five dancers will play with them: to go in and to go out.
