"L'Origine de la mort" is a reflection on different forms of interconnection, deepening Paul Maheke's interest in the possible dialogue between dance, sound and identity.
This new performance is a meditation on the thine line between otherness and strangeness, as experienced in the "roller rink culture" of Chicago's South Side as well as in the figure of the vampire.
