Beating Choir / Choeur Battant
Six performers, coming from different families, cities, countries, continents, are on stage. Their youth is what binds them. They zoom in. They zoom out. They turn the gaze inwards. They look outwards. They contradict each other. They reinforce each other. They are the ambassadors of their generation. Being young, they look for vulnerability and strength through movement and interaction. Hopeful and combative. Propelled, supported and carried by the soundscape of dozens of voices of other young people around the world, woven into a universal tapestry of sound.
