Together with video artist Naoko Tanaka, among other things known for her collaboration with Düsseldorf choreographer Morgan Nardi, as well as musician Frank Schulte who was already involved in “Jailbreak Mind“, this production deals with individual, collective and geographical frontiers. Fabien Prioville debates territorial space that surrounds every individual but is also claimed by social groups: Engulfing every body and every human being, often even slipping our perception, maybe even triggering war. The techniques of defining and defending territory are techniques of the body: Dancers Paolo Fossa and Moo Kim test their limits, balancing trespassing and abiding. The choreography plays with the French form of “we“ and – divided into two syllables – the English “no us“.
