dance video

With the students of DMA 1 lutherie

Short film retracing the work carried out in an artistic workshop with a choreographer, a musician and a videographer.


« Stripped of its tool, the blank gesture discovers the skill of the hand, the power of the sensation, the breath that animates, the consciousness and the precision of the movement.

The dance lifts the veil: under the hands appear new architectures and the fingers sculpt the invisible of the instrument”.
