It looks like happiness: it sparkles like Coca Cola and smells sweet.
It looks like happiness, but it’s not.
We have all we need to be happy, but we’re not.
There is only one way to survive: pretend!
Two castaways of our world of appearances expose their survival strategies:
false pretences, and substitutes are right around the corner!

Je suis ton cri, tes murmures inachevées
Sois mes mots qui courent entre tes mains
Je suis ce que tu dis tout bas, dans le creux de mon oreille
Sois sur le bout de mes doigts, accordée à mes accords, dansant
comme mes cordes
Regarde mes mots
Écoute mon mouvement
sur la pointe de tes doigts

Propeller Dance’s new work Tracked is an exploration of the intimate and solitary journeys we take. Tracked is inspired by the charts and courses of our past and the turbulence and obstacles we absorb and digest. Employing video manipulation, this new work-in-progress amplifies the beauty and power of the authentic body, highlighting the diversity of unbridled expression that is the essence of our humanity.
