To conclude his "Workshop in Residence", dancer and choreographer Boris Charmatz opens to the public the first work and research sessions of his next show, Liberté Cathédrale, which will be created in 2023.

For a week, at the Saint Esprit church (Paris 12e), accompanied by eleven dancers, he will investigate the movements and possible choreographic materials of this upcoming show.
Based on the notion of church and its Greek etymology ekklêsia, which translates as assembly, this project carries with it the idea of gathering, and the desire to make two key instruments ring out: the organ and the bells.

From 13 to 17 June, in the crypt and the nave, spectators are invited to warm up, observe, listen, and project, in the course of a programme that is constantly in motion.
