An esoteric game dating as far back as Ancient Times, Tarot is based on myths and individual experiences creating an infinite poetry for our multiple rebirths. In Lemiscate, Nicolas meditates on the mystery of the Magician and starts an internal journey to understand our deepest self. Realizing the world is losing its humanity, Nicolas Zemmour choreographs love, sharing and loneliness, but also the joy and responsibility of taking charge of our own freedom in a strange world.

2023, thoughts on a transformed world. In Souffle, Jane Mappin invites us to celebrate humankind’s strength and resilience, and the power of hope.

In this solo, choreographer Rebecca Margolick studies the Dybbouk tradition in Jewish mythology. It is said that if our dead are not correctly buried, they can possess the body of the living, usually women. Although being possessed by a Dybbouk was sometimes considered punishment for a grave sin, it may have been (according to Professor Rachel Elior) a desperate attempt for women to free themselves from the constraints of a patriarchal society. Through traditional Ashkenazi and Yiddish dances, choreographer Rebecca Margolick reinterprets the myth and folklore. Through the embodiment of ancient stories, Reservoir is a tribute to the resilience of Jewish women, resonating with contemporary movement and highlighting a past that remains present in our bodies to this day.
