REPETITIONS

RÉPÉTITIONS is a french expression that names the act to repeat something, it's also the word used for rehearsals.
2 dancers, a choreographer and the director play their own role in this short movie showing a team in the act of making. Micro and meta directions given by the choreographer and the director are being appropriated by dancers, making those indications an expression of their own. And, in between the execution of those tasks is emerging a short term system of affects and common energies that paths the way to a deeper mutual field of understandings.
