“It sounds like my old fridge, but it helps me think about life and to fall asleep.” (Anonymous comment)

The dance performance ÉLIANE unfolds Éliane Radigue’s composition I’Île Re-sonante as a bodily landscape, in dialogue with Radigue’s thinking. It invites us to think about our place in the world and in the cycle of nature, our relationship with ourselves and with each other, and being in the world. It invites you to ask for change.
