In this immersive ballet, Éric Minh Cuong Castaing brings together dancers, mobility-impaired children, with whom he has worked for six months, and robots to bring out a different view of disability and prove that people can dance whatever their situation. The dancers accompany the children, walking and carrying them through the air. The bodies touch, awaken, and share the pleasure of movement. The stage is transformed into a park “beyond the norm”.
