JEUX D‘ÉCHELLES – Fist time in Germany

14. June 2024 | 21:30 Uhr - 22:30 Uhr


They come from a background in dance and the circus – and they embark on a ritual of ascent that is as joyful as it is rigorous. At lofty heights, they use ladders to create a fragile space that expands into a gigantic shadow as it plays with the light at night. This dialog with the dimensions of space also becomes an action with the scale of emptiness. All the steps and gestures of this construction are the work of a collective organization in which every action, every individual is essential. Only together can the ascent be achieved and the structure kept stable. The result is a breathtaking installation in motion.

The Compagnie Retouramont is considered a pioneer of danse verticale. Its artistic director Fabrice Guillot is a professional climber, which opens up an infinite variety of movements on the rope that play with the structure of the façades and connect them with the third dimension – the air. Since 2014, the Compagnie Retouramont has led the Vertical Dance Forum, bringing together seven Danse Verticale choreographers from Europe and Canada.

This project was supported by the Creative Europe program of the European Union (2017-2019).
