During his summer residency, choreographer and dancer Harris Gkekas wonders about our time… What do our lives boil down to today? Figures and reason dominate them. Everything is scrutinized by technique, metrics and quantity. What about poetry, allegory, metaphysics? Our era, which only likes what it controls, distances itself from these notions. It no longer seems capable of grasping that the acts which are most likely to unite us are those whose excess, whose hymnic dimension transgress like a cry the predefined frameworks.

Originally from Mount Olympus, trained in France, interprets masters of the twentieth century (Merce Cunnigham, Lucinda Childs…) as much as contemporary creators (Maguy Marin, Christian Rizzo…), the artist is preparing a piece which, through its arrangements of fragments , will evoke without hierarchy the immense and the infinite, what holds us back and what exceeds us. This meeting with the public is an opportunity to reveal some extracts and to recall that, in his words, "like the big wave, we are - and we know - both all the water and nothing but drops "
