Chapel, 60’

On stage, two dancers challenge one another. In their quest for balance and harmony, Alexander Vantournhout and Axel Guérin push the limits of their bodies in an uninterrupted mutual contact. Taking turns to lead the dance, they play with their differences and vary their strength. But even though they are athletic and trained, they are not perfect... With great wit, together they explore the strengths and weaknesses of their morphology.

In this first duet, Alexander Vantournhout continues his investigation into the kinetic and creative potential of physical limitations, working with the body in a pure and surprising register.
