Piece for 5 dancers | interior spaces/theatre stage or singular spaces (hangar, wasteland, museum…) | 60 minutes

The reading room we are in is a very strange one. Desks, books, chairs, everything is there. But we will not read in the hushed silence of research. We will speak often and sometimes loudly; and the body will show itself in all its power, out of language, and dancing with the words. We shall even see images from the past emerge. We must begin by answering this first question, Why Alexandria? (a tribute to a city that has become the city of our dance over the years), and then answer all the others that it has brought up, shaking up our relationship to the otherness as well as to this language of freedom that is contemporary dance, which is both foreign and common.
