What do I bring home: new gestures and new states (pulse, bike wheel, monsters), dancing memories, bits of personalities marked in my memory, sharing, joy, laughter
The best moments:
The moments of research between us, the meal time (where we learn more about the community), the rehearsals, the pre-show (moment of relaxation and benevolence), the discovery of other dancers, the show.
This artistic project was for me the meeting and the creation of a dormant link with a group of people from different backgrounds and of different ages. If it was art that brought us together in the beginning and the desire to practice dance, we gradually became friends. The pleasure of meeting up every weekend was added to the pleasure of dancing, inventing and experimenting. An experience that allowed me to overcome myself, to explore intimate and personal things, to share and to grow up artistically and personally. Wonderful artists accompanied and drove us along the way.
Connection to oneself and to the other, discovery of the other, opening of the heart, communication without dialogue, externalized and experienced emotions, human warmth, gentleness, benevolence, sharing, creation, collective creativity, family, authenticity, exposing, inner movement, dance, cocoon, trance.

I experienced this passage of almost 2 years as a return to the body. I could no longer shy away from disabilities, and I had to confront them with and without anger. The group helped me because I had to be part of it. Never outside but with. I think that time has passed. Arthur, Anne and Luc confronted us with our identities. It's a dangerous search.
A new field for me: the search for new gestures, new ways of using my body, new ways of thinking, leading to the acquisition of new psychomotor skills. To put it more prosaically, to hustle. Understanding the construction of a shared choreographic project, experiencing it from the inside, a lot of work, a lot of trial and error that you can't imagine as a simple spectator. The collective approach to making a troupe, and, at the same time, the meeting of individualities and personalities. The importance of the final show, the challenge that creates motivation and even emulation, sharing this moment with others.
