The performance observes Orchésographie, the first manual of dance and choreographic writing, produced by Toinot Arbeau (1588). Using this historical document as a starting point, the performance unfolds between documentary restitution and musical and choreographic rewriting, while observing the resonance of such a work in our contemporaneity.

Through this physical approach, we seek a way of making heritage that engages us. By recognizing ourselves as the product of history – whose construction we seek to understand – and by making our quest a vector of invention.
