It is important to have a secret, a premonition of unknown things. Human beings must feel that they are living in a mysterious world in some respect: that inexplicable things are happening and being experienced. Only then will life be complete. (CJ)

The third creation of the dancer and choreographer Géraldine Chollet is inspired by the tradition of medieval Mystery plays and ancestral folk rituals. A theatre of religious or profane subjects, performed on trestles and mixing the supernatural and the realistic. The choreographer proposes here to open a dialogue with the mysteries that surround us in order to explore the relationship between «what has been given to us» and «what we will leave behind» . Recognizing what we have, assuming what we lack, celebrating what may come.

The base step we use in the piece is coming from a traditional middle eastern dance called DABKE. A special Thanks to the Palestinian dancers who have inspired us.
