In a place other than the stage, a place where children of that age usually live (houses, schools, gardens, squares, restaurants, museums), their story begin in a suspended time. This daily life space becomes a surrealistic dimension by transforming the child’s energy/motion into an unusual work rhythm.  This is a slow dance, bodies almost immobile, still, whose movements are compressed, deformed, divided. This performance is an immersion within the "heart rate" of a fragile society.


Automatically, the question that springs to mind is : How a child can live in such society ? 


I wanted to work with children because they have a lot of energy and a very fast pace. My idea was to do something with this rhythm, something too slow for these children.  Create with them a space where the body experiences slowness and thus opens up other possibilities for these children who are now performers for the time of a creation.
