Face Nord

Un Loup Pour l’Homme

new creation 2018

Four women partake in a series of acrobatic games of which they reinvent the rules constantly. "Knowing you are going to lose doesn’t mean you should give up the struggle ".
With determination, they take up challenges and lead the spectators as well as their own bodies to the limits of physiological reality and the laws of physics. This transposition of the performance Face Nord created by a men’s quartet in 2011 allows a confrontation of that partition which evokes the topic of resistance and sporting ingenuity, by four womens’ physiques.
