Diagonale du Vide
Amanda Homa & Idriss Roca
C’est l’hiver, le ciel est bleu
THE PROJECT /A small box in a large empty space, sheltering two tiny people – together and yet, resolutely alone.
Their trivial human lives, with fissures that reveal more – inside a silence, a clumsy gesture – allowing us to dive. Revealing their inner worlds – Through circus, fill the stage with those emotions that we all carry, but are, too often, impossible to translate into words.
Explore the unavoidable link weaving between two bodies in the same space, relationships that can be assumed from the unsaid, and yet celebrate every solitude – joyful, melancholic, and, sometimes, liberating.
We have known each other for many years, but it was clear that we would never work together.
That’s where we stand: two ways to engage with the world, two inner landscapes separated by the Atlantic ocean. A duo in contrast: aesthetically, rhythmically and methodically.
A Juggler and an Aerialist. Everything separates us.
How to use this contrast to talk about what makes us resonate together ?
How to create a common ground that’s not a clumsy compromise, but a collaboration that celebrates our backgrounds and personalities and highlights them ?
