“Evohé” is a danced seduction on tightwire, punctuated by acrobatic exploit. Cry of Bacchantes celebrating their love for their god, Bacchus. Abandoned by Theseus on the island of Naxos, during her wanders, Ariadne finds the thread she entrusted to him, the only thing left of her escaped love. The jovial Bacchus, touched by her dismay, decides to make her acquaintance. She allows herself to be approached, escapes, and finally, carried away by intoxication and pleasure, Ariadne and Bacchus get drunk with a balanced dance on the Étoile, their island, a fascinating structure of wire and tubes, of steel and tension... From the myth of Ariadne is born a dance in duet, fragile as the threads of our loves. In the press: “Variation on the thread of Ariadne, Evohé offers a beautiful interpretation of this classic tale of Greek mythology. Technical without being too much, inspired in its scenic performance and well accompanied by the musical composition, the show is a pleasurable moment.” (LeMonde.fr - August 2015 - K. Saccharin)
