Here is a body plucked out of the laws of physics, on a stage where space and time are troubled. By controlling the lighting during the performance, the character creates a dreamlike state. Perhaps he exists on the brink of life and death. Perhaps there are several stories in the one body. Each gesture becomes intensely poetic in this mysterious piece, where our perception of a body moving on stage is endlessly manipulated.

Since the age of 15, self-taught artist Aragorn Boulanger has created his own movement vocabulary and choreographic language. He has worked with many artists in contemporary dance, including Andy Degroat, Abdel-Aziz Sarrokh, Nacera Belaza, Bob Wilson for The Magic Flute at the Opéra National de Paris Bastille and Marie-Claude Pietragalla.

Since 2010 he has collaborated with Compagnie 14:20 on their work in 'new magic'. In 2005, he founded the company Genôm, and created about a dozen solo and group pieces, such as Mesomerie, Between 0 and 1... and Swan Lack, in which he extends the simplicity and accuracy of movement to its strongest meaning.

He has also assisted other artists such as Anne N’guyen and Clement Dazin in their own productions. He continues to refine his approach and research and acts as a trainer for various international structures such as Katakomben, Lido circus school of Toulouse, Les Hivernales in Avignon, among others, where he teaches the basics of the movement style he has developed.
