Underneath explores both the feeling of losing ground and that of finding it again, in focusing on the different notions of foundation and (under)ground. 

What kind of structures are carrying us, concretely as well as metaphorically ? 

From which areas emerges the desire to set (down) movement and voice, until gesture and speech appear, in the temporary common space proposed by the piece ? 

By this attention given to the physical as much as poetic depths of a surface, a place, a presence, the piece Souterrains, proposes a mutation of architectures, with an underground, an overground, and even a horizon.

The dancing bodies, intimately connected to the presence of light and sound, travel through the dimensions from which they will stand up and move, negotiating in a subtle and sometimes abrupt way between the vertical and the horizontal, between impetus and sagging, fight and alliance.

So as to navigate between stable and unstable, visible and unseen, interiority and exteriority,guided by what seems to be their ground, their land, their anchorage.
