SYNOPSIS
Chiffonnade is a choreographic creation rich in raw material which can be felt, touched, rustled, pleated, torn, that can be worn or used to disguise, and transform our appearances in the eyes of others. Cocooned within a sphere, a character and a multitude of fabrics become partners in a dance evoking emancipation, with the chrysalis of a child growing until he becomes an adult, spreading his fabric-made wings to fly. From pieces of rags, we can create new worlds…

A dreamlike dance show for very young audience that will embark you on a poetic journey from childhood to adulthood.

THE SHOW
The textile material is one of the guiding threads of the creation. The choreography comes from the interaction with the fabrics and the diversity of materials. They play the main role, following and enhancing the dancer’s movement as she takes on her journey from childhood to adulthood.
