Give me
something that doesn’t die

 »Give me something that doesn’t die  » is the new creation of the company SINE QUA NON ART directed by two choreographers and dancers, Christophe Beranger and Jonathan Pranlas-Descours. This creation with five dancers and two musicians is a work around popular dances and solos.

The scene follow each other, creating unique visual and musical universe of the ‘RaveParty’ lying on background techno beat, through a baroque moment shifted to military marches.

Dance and music carry us into a jubilant dance tracks. Body, music and visual arts outweigh the sense of the public in a strong choreographic journey, a generous and stirring piece, lively and created to excite the audience dancing desire.

''This layer in suspended, form a labyrinth lightning and multiplying in kaleidoscopic bursts of faces or gestures of the dancers. A space constrained, limited,
and surprisingly beautiful, both fragile and threatening.
A powerful allegory of our life journey, territories we inhabit,
animate, or leave fallow.'' V.Vanier
