A performative game inspired from our everyday lives, Tino Sehgal, Christian Boltanski, Lewis Carroll and many more.

Alice in Wonderland’s fans will simply love this piece. Through an experiential proposal that plays with the different layers of distance between the artists and the audience, this performance invites the public to dive into a universe which reveals the fragility and vulnerability of our daily life. [Fragile] is a dance performance, a choreographic installation, a performative game, a party or simply an experience that works with the multiplicity of our identities.
