  • Dieu ne t’a pas créé juste pour danser (God did not create you to dance) glorifies contemporary dance as it is, in all its plurality, with its strengths, idiosyncrasies and flaws. Through its mocking airs, the piece draws the portrait of that It factor, of these « je-ne-sais-quoi » (indescribable qualities) defining dance and what we enjoy in it.

    Beyond its apparent lightness, Dieu ne t’a pas créé juste pour danser openly questions our tastes (even the supposedly indisputable ones), our expectations and our appreciations of dance shows. What touches us, entertains us, makes us think? Don’t our failures and mistakes sometimes reveal themselves as fragile, human, alive and moving?
