French company Retouramont creates an opening in the dense sprawl of the city – a ‘clairière urbaine’, or urban clearing – for this free outdoor dance performance. Finding outlets for its expressive aerial choreography in the bustle of city streets, its dancers integrate into the architecture and populate the empty spaces between the buildings, monuments and thoroughfares of the urban jungle.
"It doesn’t consider walls as limits but rather as openings and opportunities - and a means to invent new choreography."
Find out more about Clairière Urbaine in this Festival Hot Seat interview with creators Retourament.
