Karine Ponties / Cie Dame de Pic

Same Same

A rather shaky heron, tied up in its feathers and perched on peaks, a short-toed eagle flying in large rhythmic circles before fading away. That is the wild side to them.

Nothing defines humankind better than people’s tendency to carry out absurd acts to achieve completely improbable results. In a world where reason is a beautiful façade, the sudden emergence of the insane confronts us with our relationship with normality and allows brand new paths to be revealed.

Experiencing something between a burnout and a brownout, two women, exposed to one to the other like a palindrome in a distorting mirror, lose all reason and discover the wild animals within them.

Tereza Ondrová and Petra Tejnorová launch into an unexpected duet, directed by Franco-Belgian choreographer Karine Ponties.
