July 11, 2018: ÉCOUTE POUR VOIR at the Square Cabot

Maï(g)wenn et les Orteils and Danse Carpe Diem/Emmanuel Jouthe present a new version of ÉCOUTE POUR VOIR performed by professional dancers living with an intellectual disability.

ÉCOUTE POUR VOIR is made up of various solos dispersed throughout the space and danced simultaneously. Dancers and spectators wear headphones connected to an iPod and share in a choreography for the duration of a piece of music. Through the sensibilities of artists living with a disability and their body language, this remounting of ÉCOUTE POUR VOIR will possibly create uncommon relationship situations. In this space of intimacy and proximity, the spectator, challenged by the artist living with an intellectual disability, will be exposed to a simple artistic experience, which, however, will be able to change his vision of the human being and his abilities.
