Dancing defines the entire nervous system go in to a field of coherence. It can not tell the difference between an imagined experience and a real experience on stage. There are number of bodily movements, having their source in our system, that do not possess the character of conscious actions. I know what’s going on in my own nervous system, whatever realities I am creating out of the infinite flux of being. I don’t know anything about anybody else’s reality unless they tell me about it. I need to observe their gesture carefully in order to understand them.

The absurdity of the simplicity of everyday life is deceiving. Every moment, experience, a person is a conductor of the boundless ocean of knowledge.
We are part of the world, and the world is part of us. As you discover yourself, follow the truth. Connecting the vertical of the past and the future with the present moment of life.
We can’t say everything remains constant in life. All we can say is: it transforms as we move.

ON THE EDGE
If you love me, fight with me. If you love me, yell with me. Scream and shout with me to show me you care. Stomp; run; wail, but stand your ground. Shake with me and cry with me. Become exhausted, annoyed and utterly fed up with me.
Dancers: Anton Kochnev, Ksenia Kiryukhina

"AXIS MUNDI" AND GENEVA PROJECT
Inspired by the astronomical observatories built in the 17th century by Maharaja Sawai Jai Singh II in central India, Axis Mundi invites us to turn our gazes to the sky and consider our place in the universe while questioning our representations of it. Imagined by music producer POL and choreographer Louis-Clément da Costa, the piece plunges the viewer into a sensory universe where notions of space and time collide.
Art director: POL
Conception: POL and Louis-Clément Da Costa Choreography and Performance: Louis-Clément Da Costa / Mohamed Toukabri Raakesh Sukesh / Narendra Patil Lighting: Florent Naulin
with the help of : Ville de Genève, Pro Helvetia - Fondation suisse pour la culture, Loterie Romande, Fondation Ernst Göhner, Fondation Suisse des Artistes Interprètes SIS.
