Taking its core base on the combination of the very sharp and fierce composition from Penderecki and the monotonous blue inspiration from the painter Yves Klein, this ballet assembles two antithetical yet complementary forces. The one, calm and placid of a soft and constant flow; the other, rough and piquant, made of sudden burst and explosion. These two energies flowing through the stage are the receptacle of our inner own struggles and aspiration in life, like two sides of a same personality, of our own contrasts and paradoxes, of our anxieties and calmness.
