groupe ENTORSE [àut]

2014.10.4 (Sat.) - 2014.10.5 (Sun.)

The Japan debut of groupe ENTORSE, a performance group now enjoying critical acclaim. Their name, ENTORSE, means “to sprain”—the inadvertent application of torque to a body, an object, or a space, causing it to twist. A virtual image, born amid distortion, becomes reality in performances fraught with paradox. From France—a world of insecure and frenetic emotion.
