Erwan Keravec and Mickaël Phelippeau like to work/interact with their identities, or in any case with an identity—to transform it. The starting point could be this phantom limb, this thing that used to be, that will be subtly referenced or dealt with head-on. Bagpipes, usually the symbol of a particular history and culture, become here an instrument of obsession, of an infinite sound... Similarly, the body of the dancer, going through a traditional vocabulary, would here express a distant recollection. Beyond all that, the meeting of those two artists—who share an inclination for kig ha farz and fest noz—will be for them a challenging way to learn about one another.“To learn means: to watch where one puts one's fingers, to memorise the keys one pushes like one notices the tracks of an animal one is hunting.” – Peter Szendy
