Three powerful women
“Three graces, three valkyries for a long, incantatory development, from darkness to light, from the clinical to the carnal, from immobility to the cavalcade, from the synthetic to the organic, from the futuristic to the archaic. The first part is striking [...] It rises gradually, it reveals itself, stronger, faster, in an exponential scale of arms and hair. The Joint Forces are palpable and the dance provides a physical demonstration of female empowerment. »
LE SOIR I Jean-Marie Wynants
A choreographic slap!
“In the audience, for 60 minutes, not a sound, not a breath. We feel an incredible tension that unites like an overpowering magnet the stage and the room. [...] Tonight, no doubt, we have witnessed, and participated in, a unique moment inhabited by "primary, telluric and technological" forces (according to the perfectly correct words of the creators) which continue to pulse in our neurons and in our bodies several hours after this bewitching ritual. »
ASK FOR THE PROGRAM I Didier Béclard
Emancipation through bodies
“This trilogy of powerful women (Leslie Mannès, Mercedes Dassy, Daniel Barkan) generates strength rather than submitting to it, until liberation, joy, ecstasy. Shamans, warriors, cyborgs, they create a whirlwind of "primary, telluric and technological forces" that releases a collective energy in a sort of celebration ritual of the living. »
RTBF I Christian Jade
A strange dizziness
"The trio of dancers (Leslie Mannès, Mercedes Dassy and Daniel Barkan) carried by the rhythmic rages of Thomas Turine and the inventive lights of Vincent Lemaître will accelerate the cohesion of the group, sometimes gathered, sometimes dispersed in a kind of very controlled trance which alternates the fusions of the group and its dispersion in space. [...] Impossible to escape this warrior charm and this perfection of gesture and body. »
