Against the backdrop of a polar landscape, Mirages – boreal souls takes the spectator into the heart of the icy expanses of the Great North. The piece takes us adrift to lands as real as they are fantasized, and questions as much as it makes us dream.
This contemporary tale plays on illusion and uses visual, choreographic, sonic and sensory means to arouse fascination and fascination. Sound and video play an important role, and combined with movement, reveal the dreamlike magic of this landscape, and transfigure the icy nature that conditions the mind and transforms the body.
Imprint and fusion, the piece is interested in the capacity of contagion that nature has on man, to better question by mirror effect the imprint that man leaves on the earth.
