After ECCE (H) OMO and ALEXANDRE, two solos which sought to interpret an archive starting from the body, Pol Pi puts this question back to work by starting from the singular archives of which each individual is manager. Inviting two dancers located in other points of time, culture, gender, it creates a crossroads between three generations, three stories.
On stage are three generations, but they coexist there not just to play with these contrasts. Their dialogue projects them beyond. In their gestures, we capture a way of going back, and better revive itself through temporalities. Between her and them, lived experiences intertwine, weave and overturn. From the simple gestures warm-up, it is first and foremost the bodies that show the eras, united by the same visible happiness: that of dancing. It is therefore a pleasure to find alongside Pol Pi, Jean-Christophe Paré, exceptional dancer of the Paris Opera, and discover his four decades younger, Solen Athanassopoulos, who shows a personality and is highly noticed in her acute practice of hip-hop.
