Invited by the Fondazione Nazionale della Danza / Aterballetto company, Angelin Preljocaj and Rachid Ouramdane created this piece for the elderly.

Each in their own way, the two choreographers shake up our perception of bodies, dance and older people.
After 70 years of existence, what does the human body want? What can it do? And how can it break from the chains of its own age?
