Two Portuguese artists, João Paulo Santos and Rui Horta, a choreographer, mix their experiences and influences to create a singular show in which they find their own unique language.

This show deals with their different perceptions of their bodies and objects. On an empty scene, with some objects, a chinese mast and above all a body, João expresses his anger and his masterly skills between the sky and the earth, but also his exhaustion and his loneliness.

 "My aim is not to be or not to be a dancer but to be in harmony with the chinese pole and with my body"
Joao Paulo dos Santos

This show was created on request of the Festival d'Avignon, in the context of Les Sujets à Vif - SACD.
This show has succeeded a lot. It was presented more than hundred times all over the world in France, Europe, South-East Asia, West Africa, USA, and Latina America.
