How does light create places for dance and, conversely, how do bodies invent spaces of light? An on-stage community of dazzled and afterwards extra-sighted people are fascinated by illusion and the absurd. They make use of the codes in ‘ombromania’, an art that emerged in the 19th century and consists of creating shadows projected with the hands.   

In a world overflowing with images, R É V E R B É R E R is designed to be a feast for the eyes. An adventure for the eyes, where dance and light are inseparable. A space that is both simple and complex, where care is taken with nuances, where bodies reflect light and shadows. A place where we welcome the polysemy of images and defend our dark side without sacrificing harmony.
