The Retouramont Company invites partici-pants on a sensory journey as an opportunity to share the dancer sensations like vertigo, weightlessness, gravity, weight, verticality.
For instance, to physically experience such concepts as verticality and horizontality, participants are enticed to discover a range of bodily sensations as falling, or sliding in slow-motion. Diving deep into their internal state, they gradually come to grasp the sensations that inspire the choreographers and enliven their dance. The company uses different elements that has been used in company pieces like a huge cushions, an inclined plane or a rope way that have to be followed eyes closed…
All those experiences are supervised by dancers that belong to the company, they will guide the particpants through this sensory journey.
