Short movie inspired by the performance La Mecanique des Anges
Directed by Bertrand Guerry

Alone in is cosy little room, a veteran is getting ready for the traditional chech up  of his gun. Nothing is left to chance. Above all, he really needs this Wagnerian melody, to affect him and keep him calm. A trip without luggage, return date is waiting for him. A trip toward a place where he and six others persons will be submitted to specific rules.
An odd old man is welcoming these seven new persons with some un-warmly few words : it is the start of the bal of the lost souls.

Round and round and hand it over...

In 2001, a percussionist-composer and a dancer-choreographer decided to invent a different road and excavate the delicate relationship between music and dance. How percussionists dance ?
How sound a dancer’s body ? The dance becomes musical and music is also intended to be seen.
