Emmanuel Jouthe

1/3

Introduction

​​Embarking on a trajectory in the vanishing space of a cosmology without apparent grounds; navigating between convolution and cohabitation. These are the parameters around which the four artists on stage create and re-create the space. Every moment of VEGA contains the attempt to seize a site never encountered. Returning becomes an act of abandonment.

Approach

With VEGA, Emmanuel Jouthe embraces a dramaturgy quite different from his recent works while maintaining the human poetry that carries his choreography.

In this creation, he invites proximity with the audience through space. The choreographer has challenged himself to palpably render the elusive nature of imagination.
