Carried away in a hypnotic ballet of arms, Perrine Valli swirls in front of a carpet of light. A tension is established until she plunges her hands into it and is completely taken up in it. Moving between the neon lights like a nymph in water, offering herself up to space, to light, to the electronic score by Mika Vainio, her body melts into the elements until she is removed from all reality. ADB

A row of neon lights, a line of light on which the body places itself in an unstable equilibrium until it floats in space, between meditation, obstinacy, flight and swings towards another universe of perception. From appearances to disappearances, Marthe Krummenacher, William Forsythe's former dancer, shows astonishing expressiveness.
