"Falling into misfortune but nevertheless seeing the irony and the humor within it.

Search in the dark. In adverse situations. Invent an alternative. It all depends on the perspective.”

The duo of dancers Clémentine Télesfort and Lisard Tranis bring to the stage the expressiveness that emerges from body language and the physical reflexes that come into play when facing adverse circumstances. La Mecànica de l’Infortuni seeks to question the resilience of the human being, and expose which patterns are formed in the body when faced with misfortune.


A reflection on the creative capacity of the imagination, in which irony and humor serve as an outlet. This piece of dance, theater and objects, reveals the grotesqueness of being whilst celebrating the beauty that resides in our clumsy mistakes, from where the genuineness of movement and gestures emerges.

You're watching but what do you really see?

Scotoma is a dance theater piece that speaks about attention. An invitation to reflect on what captures and directs it in a world governed by "the economy of attention."


Combining dance, theater and objects, the piece reveals sensitive partnering and contact work allowing a poetic imaginary as well as genuine humor to emerge. It's desire is to invite the audience on a journey that asks how to preserve our right to choose to what we give our own attention.


Could we perceive what we overlooked or notice what is hidden at first sight?

Scotoma, def. - Area of partial alteration of the field of view that consists of a partially diminished or completely degenerated visual acuity that is surrounded by a normal (or relatively well-preserved) field of view. This is a location without photoreceptor cells. All normal mammalian eyes have a scotoma in their field of vision, usually called a "blind spot."

Skin on Skin was first created as a video dance work made in collaboration with French film director Valentine Ezavin during the pandemic. Exploring and reflecting around the subject of contact and touch in this context, we felt compeled to create this work which developed into a 15 minutes site specific performance.
Through improvisation, the piece reveals the delicacy and potentiality of touch as a medium for non-verbal communication.
