“We have no choice but to go on, for distance to pass through us. Without changing anything about the distance.” Citing Guillevic, the choreographer and dancer (off stage here) wants to portray the excursion, question the elements, and celebrate the journey more than the destination. Contemplation before movement in fact. And above all the initial principle of the step.

With his Abis dance company, Julien Carlier is familiar with hip-hop and with taking it off the beaten track. The origins of the threesome in Paysage are more diverse, marrying breakdance techniques with other languages, from contemporary dance to acrobatics via effects taken from video such as accelerations, slo-mo and distortions. Coming out of yourself and your habits to inhabit the void and let yourself be inhabited by it, echoing the creed of Agnès Varda who said: “If we opened people up, we’d find landscapes”.
