«This work consists of several short pieces. Many contemporary dance works were created in that way, from George Balanchine to Merce Cunningham, from Martha Graham to Alwin Nikolais – these American choreographers almost always present modular evenings composed of short pieces. And more fundamentally, my interest in the short form comes to me via rock'n roll: short, efficient tracks gaining in power what they lose in duration. For me this system works well for dance, where the composition is often more poetic than narrative, where the format needs to be adapted to its subject, to go through different worlds in a same programme and take the pleasure to get lost»
