Our world is in the midst of turmoil. Human madness forces Earth to defend itself with violent aftershocks, like so many distress signals. Will wisdom finally become the watchword of the times to come, clearing the path to a possible future?
This is the undoubtful aim of a masterful, concise record, stretching a mysterious thread between a worried past, here recalled by Jean-Pierre Soarez's trumpet and its 'Zoydian' echoes, a destructive present where forests become deserts, and an uncertain future that we urgently need to be shaped. As an architect of a unique landscape of light and shadow – here is a cosmogony haunted by a underlying beat and unknown chants – where shouts and murmurs merge, melting into the heart of melodies as ancient as they are contemporary, Thierry Zaboitzeff comes to us as a human being aware of the challenges ahead. His radical, fiercely beautiful visions are ours.

The view from below upwards revolutionises the perception of dance and enables a new, unprecedented expansion of perspective and a shift of boundaries.
At a height of 1.50 metres, a small, transparent dance floor, below which the audience can lie down, limited to 6 people.

The change of perspective creates great intimacy, but also shifts power relations, plays with gravity and implies the observers looking straight upwards, very close to the bodies of the dancers, who seem to float above them.
Who is watching whom here, who is exposed to whom? Proximity allows closeness and familiarity, which makes us vulnerable, but at the same time creates complicity. Front and back, above and below are redefined, the spectators lose their orientation.
