de tête en cape

In De tête en cape, the choreographer and dancer Balkis Moutashar takes young audiences into a phantasmagorical world of childhood where it’s all about dressing up. There are no limits to this imaginary world: anything goes...

In a dazzling and shifting duet, two dancers, one male and one female, take part in a game of metamorphosis, adorning themselves in the finery of mythical characters straight out of children’s tales and dreams. Knights, strange birds, catfish, princesses and even... Superman appear on stage. Archetypal characters from a lavish, marvellous and at times disturbing world that have populated our imagination over the centuries!
