O let me weep
Les mains sales
created in 2018
O let me weep is an invitation to participate in an intimate, acoustic, visual and sensorial experience around a tiny circus ring.
Accompanied by a singer and a cellist, a man and a woman play at taking care of each other, frightening themselves and venturing into intense trusting relationships to the point of exhaustion. A ballet in suspension portraying the poignancy of relationships: tense, euphoric and delicate.
