For her new creation Claire Croizé wishes to abandon the theatre frame and to deal with natural circumstances, putting the dancing body in unusual locations and creating an intimate and closer relationship with the audience.
Gathered on a structure conceived by set designer Jozef Wouters, the spectators surround the performance space and enjoy a privileged encounter with the dancing body.
A trio created with young and talented dancers José-Paulo dos Santos, Youness Khoukhou and Radouan Mriziga, conceived to be performed both inside and outside in different natural environments.
A genuine tribute to youth and vital force, Primitive evokes a return to the source, to the origin, playing on the ambivalence of a positive yet destructive energy.
