Like a perpetuum mobile, or a machine that must turn on its own continuously around its axis, On & On & On brings together three aerial bodies defying gravity.
Akin to the movement of the whirling dervishes and based on the practice of pole dancing, the extreme physicality of this performance renews the aesthetics of this discipline.
On & On & On combines the contemplation of suspended bodies with empathy for their vulnerability in holding on against all odds. This gyrating movement where the body is pushed to its limits affects the state of the performers and the spectators by proposing a ritual experience.
Verticality collapses in the face of the horizontality of the bodies, accompanied by a sound design that enhances their weightless state. This hypnotic kinetic human sculpture could almost make one dizzy.
