OuDance Festival | Naïf Production: Des Gestes Blancs
Dance Theatre|Contemporary dance|Young audiences
Dance duo for an adult and a child - a creation intended for family audience (children from 7 years old).
A duo of a man and his son approaches physically to the notion of paternal bond, of filiation. Together, they explore the figure of a father and that of a child. All that is left to do is to dance without making any additional fuss. White Gestures shows a couple that, through the imbalance of their forces, tries to find precision, discovers the desire to play with each other, coyly takes a chance on tenderness. A dance where the image of one is but a reflection of the other, distorted in time and space.
