Why We Fight? | Alain Platel, Mirjam Devriendt (BE)

Réminiscences | Virginie Brunelle (CA)

There is perhaps no stranger animal than the woman, a creature whose delicate nature evokes that of a flower. Let us take a closer look at how it blossoms: here we see a woman in its shell.

Paralaxe | Pedro Tiago (PT)

A multidisciplinary choreography that defies gravity while engaging in a perfect union with the melody that marks the growing rhythm and the contagious emotion.
