«Imagination creates reality.»
Richard Wagner

Within the dancing training programme on the energy of elements, the 2011 crew worked on the fifth element, ether or space. In the absence of substance, the latter can manifest itself only through what it is filled with: energies, substances, «things»… while seeking to underline the dancers’ and the group’s specificities, this creation has come to life, and is playful and spiritual, all at once.
