WORLD PREMIERE PERFORMANCE
"THE BELLY OF THE MOUNTAIN -
DANCE WITH THE DREAMERS"
MJC Théâtre de Colombes
“What’s the point of a song with no message?”
And, apart from its esthetic force and beauty, what’s the point of a dance that doesn’t militate in favour of a better world?
If I have chosen to call this new creation
“THE BELLY OF THE MOUNTAIN - DANCE WITH THE DREAMERS”
it is so that my dance becomes a dream-catcher at the disposal of all the visionaries of the world
"..... Just like moons and like suns
with the certainty of tides
just like hopes springing high
Still I'll rise..... "
