Creation for five performers.
Duration: 15 minutes
Choreography: Alain Gruttadauria
Music: creation Jean Christophe Scottis (extract from “Virus” 2005)
Aquatic or sidereal depths,
An endless quest for peace
Fear and anguish of the unknown

Abyss, a physical and poetic choreographic piece at the same time
It highlights particular and original writing.
A singular vocabulary
which reinforces isolation, dizziness, “height” …

Abyss stages opposing forces.
The “earthly and brute forces” confront “the Air and the delicate”.

The performers come together and separate,
powerfully and sometimes, their junction forms an enormous tender and violent organic mass.
The empty board reinforces their loneliness and their “Vertigo”.
