Le Récital des Postures is like a concert for one instrument - the human body. Choreographer Yasmine Hugonnet collects a series of postures that ask both intense engagement and complete abandonment. Her agility and breathtaking strength allows her body to seem suspended. She appears to float in a white space as the resonances of her movements wash over the imagination of the audience. Simple and mysterious, this solo accumulates evocative, unspoken sensations and images - it speaks to us from under the skin.
