Nina Santes et Célia Gondol, 2016
A LEAF takes the form of a choreographic concert in which the presence and voices of Célia Gondol and Nina Santes occupy the space and strive to make the audience vibrate along with them. A LEAF is a cabaret, a puzzle, made of ruptures and black holes, composed with human and more-than-human movements and voices.
Between songs, poems, and sound dances, A LEAF is a fictional object in which are hidden real and speculative scientific theories as well as sentimental states.
The two figures who inhabit the stage invite the audience to an immersive experience and to enter the image through invasive and mesmerising sounds. The show is a journey, a spiral.
