In its design and choreography, Evo represents the expression of the quest for simplicity. Based on similar principles to the Butoh dance, the performance combines slow and precise movements in a strong and pure visual in order to reach the spectator into his imagination, his body, his soul. Accompanied by a powerful surrounding sound, the body unfolds from an initial position evoking an egg embedded in the earth to stand up, facing the audience, in a calm and serene verticality. Throughout this choreographic journey, the white dancer moves as a pure matter without unnecessary movement, mingling with the earth, the matrix element.
Evo is usually performed outdoor, but suites definitely well to any indoor or specific spaces.
