Crossroads to Synchronicity

For 6 dancers. Production Autumn 2017
From the piece « Synchronicity » created in 2012


Performed by 6 of the company’s leading figures, this work inspired by Carl Jung lays bare the vital aspirations that inspire us and explores these strange coincidences that resonate in us with such intensity. A clock that stops when a beloved father passes away. An encounter that changes a destiny…

Upon video images, directed by the choreographer, the 6 dancers plunge into deep waters of danger, rebellion, love, loss, regrets and madness.
