During December 2011, the European School of Visual Arts was the guest of honour for the Festival Henry Langlois, an international cinematographic festival taking place in Poitiers (FRANCE). For this event the national theater asked us to create video which will be projected on the exterior wall.

Two dancers are slowly moving, trying to reach the extremity of the space and then coming together, or maybe they were together and want to split… Birth or death ? The black bodies are caught in a circular time. Two bodies, two spaces which can never be one.
