Poetic Machine (2018)

Poetic Machine (2018)

Poetic Machine is the title of the second full- lenght performance of compagnie Monica.
For this production, choreographer Sarah Bostoen started from the concepts of power, and more specifically the power, or lack of power, of our brain.
The performance presents different creatures, somewhere between human and non-human. 
The strong soundscape synchronises with the breath, the inner thoughts, evoked in the movement.
