“What do you see? What I see is time passing. Tonight, as a world exclusive, I’ve come to offer you time passing.
Here, it’s a cyclone, imagine it big, tropical, powerful. A cyclone destroys everything in its path. Let’s go. Come, we’ll dance in my eye, it will be calm.
My name is Kevin, I’m 37 years old. What do you see when I tell you my name is Kevin?
I’ve already died three times. Here, I can reborn and be whoever I want to be.”

The Cyclone Pursuit starts from an intimate desire, an inner need for uprising: how to deconstruct a world, a system whose foundations leave little room for individuals to freely trace their existence, their transformations, their experiences, beyond norms and prescriptions? This choreographic piece thus takes its origin in a deep need of insubordination to the enclaves decreed by a world that smells of obsolescence, to draw the plans of a renewal.

This solo is presented as a ritual celebrated between the secret of a mental room and the immense night of the cosmos. We hear murmurs of memory, echoes of ghosts, dreamed journeys. The dance answers to this necessary agitation and to this “need of consolation impossible to satisfy”. It crosses the depressions, the whirlwinds, the gusts, and aspires to gain this space of calm, of remission. A refuge, the eye of the cyclone.
The Cyclon Pursuit allows itself to be penetrated by the idea that ours deads influence our lives and live with us, we who still believe we are alive.

“Thoreau still had the forest of Walden – but where is the forest now where human beings can prove that it is possible to live in freedom outside the fixed forms of society?”, Stig Dagerman, Our need for consolation is impossible to satiate.
