Revolution is a piece for twelve to fifteen women dancers launching into a protracted choreographic rotation.
In this uninterrupted, unstoppable march, the body is a mere cog in the greater service of the work, a creative machine propelled by a mass of art workers.

“I would like to make audible the dark roar of resistance”
These silent, united women engage in creation as the last retreat of resistance, dialogue and insurrection.
Revolution is an act of human empowerment, because it is only through total, deliberate effort and commitment that we can unearth the treasure buried deep within the idea of humanity.
Revolution is the first part of the project Etude critique pour un trompe-l’oeil (Critical Study for a Trompe l’oeil).
