Le chant des sirènes

Since the dawn of history, the world has seesawed between creation and deconstruction, forever falling apart and constantly being rebuilt.

Without sacrificing the aesthetic and formal standards that are the hallmark of his reputation, Sylvain Émard pursues his quest for dance that is raw, more vulnerable, where imperfections are a life force that brings us closer to the truth of man. The humanist element so characteristic of his work is once again in the forefront.
