François Chaignaud / Cecilia Bengolea Sylphides


With their acting background, choreographers Bengolea and Chaignaud are as interested in academic techniques as they are in more colloquial bodily expressions, such as street dances. In Sylphides, they are literally entrapped in latex bags, forcing them on the verge of breathlessness. The work follows these immaterial beings in a movement from lethargy to rebirth.
