Vice Versa

Mossoux-Bonté Company

Creation 2015

17 minutes


Two women fused together swing back and forth, entangled in their complicit intimacy. They are every woman and are protected through their connivance against the violence of man. Their fused gestures are contoured by the rhythm of the stanzas of an ancient song: a complaint that recounts the cruelty of jealousy and the blindness of vengeance. The story becomes lost in the mad throbbing of their bodies as their gestures render the escalating violence futile…

Vice Versa is the first instalment of a series of short dance pieces, the Miniatures.
