Le Récital des Postures is like a concert for one instrument - the human body. Choreographer Yasmine Hugonnet collects a series of postures that ask both intense engagement and complete abandonment. Her agility and breathtaking strength allows her body to seem suspended. She appears to float in a white space as the resonances of her movements wash over the imagination of the audience. Simple and mysterious, this solo accumulates evocative, unspoken sensations and images - it speaks to us from under the skin.

How to become ‘home’? The idea can be paradoxical - home is solid in our memories, but its colours fade and we forget details over time. Our bodies adapt to new places, new rules - we thrive on curiosity. HOME takes all these ideas and draws on the deep-rooted experiences of five dancers, creating a detailed, agile and rhythmic dance vocabulary driven by a pulsating, urgent soundscape composed by the choreographer.
