The wish is to develop a poetic, musical and clownish world from this object which is water: work above, around, in and with water. It’s as if we were a little bit further in the future, the water level is higher and people live feet in the water… And so, what’s the change ? Who’s adapting ? Gradually, drops after drops, the wish grows for a show in which the only difference would be to have feet in the water. Suddenly everyday life changes, water above ankles.. It’s another rhythm, another time…
