A chance encounter between two acrobats: a frustrated lover and a jilted dreamer. This is the story of two hearts making sense of perfection.
Le Lien is the invisible string that connects two people. Sometimes really strong, sometimes just about to break, it is the complex yet simple bond that we juggle with our whole lives.
This piece follows the journey of individuals through the absurdity, joy and mundanity of ‘making things work’ with another. Acrobatics, movement and storytelling combine to expose the hopes we hold for the ideal lover.
“Lyrical synchronisation of sound and movement. Rummer and Jean-Daniel Broussé … combined acrobatics with passion in their hand-to-hand acrobatics sequences.” -The Telegraph

Questioning a lost connection with our origins, Dust invites viewers to reflect on their steady separation from nature and the decay of this complex relationship. How did we become strangers in our own environment?
