WHEN THE SNOW MELTS
‘When the snow melts’ is a confrontation with our judgment and the form it has taken. Our perception has become a second skin and prevents us from being honest. Thats why we will compare our mirrors and get rid of our armor, for our only exit is water. And so we wade in softness and find our strength.
Premiering May 2021.
Deafening silence, surrounded by thousands of stimuli and a chest that seems to burst from its skin. Your breathing stops and the silence grows further in the dark, who am I when I don’t do anything anymore?

Tongues of Denial
A loner or a hermit?
Many individuals can be found in a foyer, together forming a small society. But what does the presence of another do to them? Do they feel connected or alone?
Six of these individuals will, through dance, take you into their process of self-discovery, while facing society and its associated expectations and opinions.
