Through the eyes of a witness, "I know you but I don’t know you" recounts a distant relationship between a brother and a sister. Because of distance, space and loneliness, the fraternal relationship is exacerbated, as life relentlessly places them on tracks they have not willingly chosen. As a hard-of-hearing choreographer, he aims to create the expression of pure language through dance. Using spoken language and literary essays, Cai Glover aspires to rise above words through a fast, expressive and highly emotional choreography.

In a dimension altered by technology, four characters try to create new bearings. Together, they do their best to connect their own matrix to the matrix of others, searching for a shared identity. The new MMXX process, from Pauline Gervais, allows digital entities to fight isolation. With movements restricted by an alienating web, four android dancers succeed in transcending distance and loneliness, despite everything. Their disarticulated, frenzied, and synchronous movements give an impression of unity and tenderness.

Elon Höglund starts with the idea that we were born from earth and will go back to it. The piece reflects on the cycles of life and death.
