Description

Lively bodies and rolling wheelchairs : all this is unleashed on stage in Corpuscule Danse’s first inclusive dance show aimed at a young audience! Three impressive performers spin these great machines, dance with them, take them apart to transform them into puppets, luminous wheels, disco robot … what else? The only limit is your imagination.

When you see a wheelchair, what comes to your mind? Our three all-terrain perfomers see it as an amazing vehicle with endless play possibilities. You’ll even get a quick course in taking a wheelchair apart, and witness a balancing act on wheels between the reigning champion and a formidable contender. Arranged like a joyful string of theatrical pearls, this tender and playful show for dancers and objects draws us into a universe where bodies are often in unison, but where each one reveals itself and tells its own story through movement.

In a word, it’s the story of people who share, for the duration of a dance, all the fragility and beauty of being oneself. Together.
