Best Dance Show - Maeterlinck Prize 2020

FORCES is a futuristic and immersive ritual where three female figures carry us away in a whirlwind of primary, telluric and technological forces. Like cyborg warrior shamans, these smugglers draw on the invisible, to make their bodies the vector of a vital, collective, emancipatory metamorphosis.

In the wake of ATOMIC 3001, Leslie Mannès, Thomas Turine and Vincent Lemaître continue to explore the triangular and fusional relationship between body, sound and light, in order to provoke in the viewer a sensory, total and inclusive experience.


FORCES uses the irrational to celebrate the power of the living by featuring a permeable body in constant mutation, a body connected to the elements, to chaos, to joy and to the community trying to re-appropriate its power from within.


"The power from within is the power from below,

from the dark, from the earth, the power that comes

of our blood, our lives and our desire

passionate about living things. It's the power to feel

to heal, to love, to create, to give shape to
our future, to change our social structures. ”
