A woman faces an overwhelming situation. A question that is contemporary and universal at a time, comes to her mind: must one enter the fight or give up? Powerful, energetic movements accompanying Beethoven’s monumental “Ode to Joy“ contrast with introverted, cautious gestures to the music of Jack DeJohnette. Space, time and musicality compose the frame of this dance, in which the performer writes her own corporal score in the moment.

Performance: Glòria Ros. Choreography: Emilie Birraux in collaboration with Glòria Ros.
