Story: Tout-Moun by Héla Fattoumi and Éric Lamoureux
Renowned choreographers Héla Fattoumi and Éric Lamoureux have designed a remarkable video set for their show featuring ten dancers and a saxophonist on the stage of the Chaillot National Dance Theatre. In this captivating ballet entitled Tout-Moun, which translates as “everyone and everything” in English, the choreographers draw inspiration from the writings of French novelist, poet and philosopher, Édouard Glissant.
Tout-Moun is a beautiful exploration of Glissant's concepts, reflecting the notion that each individual occupies a place in the collective whole. The choreographers translate these ideas into a dynamic and stimulating performance in which the boundaries between presence and absence, individual and group, dissolve in fluid dance. Through this breathtaking ballet, Héla Fattoumi and Éric Lamoureux invite the audience to contemplate the interconnectedness between humanity and the world in which we live.
