A different device was presented each week over 3 weeks:
Water: basin occupying half of the space with floating seats
Food: Pastries aligned on tables
Horizontality: Daily progressive lowering of the ceiling by a rope mesh,
bubble wrap floor covered by a carpet
Catherine Contour is motivated by her desire to pursue the work of opening up space and the thought in dance, her journey as an artist-explorer is conceived as an ever-evolving search, consisting of hypotheses rather than principles.
The work itself is no longer a self-contained and finite universe. It is constantly being reviewed and rethought, based on its own observations: body memories, image memories. In fact, the work created has no limits, neither in time nor in space. Rather, it resembles a vast polymorphic « corpus » integrating places, experiences, participants and audience members simultaneously.

Contour? teased the critic Gérard Mayen, why, it’s just the opposite ! Someone has rarely passed through an experience that refuses to set its limits, boundaries and landmarks with such joyful obstinacy, porous fantasy and science at one’s finger-tips.
