Image from GIMME A BREAK !!!

GIMME A BREAK!!! is a quest for catharsis. Borrowing from the vocabulary of rave music, meditative practices and headbanging, Baptiste Cazaux continues his research into emotional peace and detachment, which he sees as a survival strategy in the face of capitalism. In a duet with loudspeakers, the choreographer composes a deregulated space-time, full of complexities and contradictions, in search of a vital and necessary impulse.
