Sous apparence

Sous apparence

Sous apparence is the "transcription of an experience in a musical, visual and choreographic mode". Marie-Agnès Gillot is experimenting pointe work, worn by both female and male dancers. The piece is about the paradox of appearances that are so closely linked  to the stage: "We constantly play appearances, we are taken for what we are not. My search is about challenging myself to approach spirituality" she says.
