Taking inspiration from today's melancholy atmosphere, Thierry Smits gives us a paradoxically formal creation. Anticipation of regret for what is disappearing is the filter applied to the dance – the precise, well-controlled steps without a hint of pathos communicate an aura of uneasiness, suffocation and having nowhere to go, as well as attempts to ward off this feeling and hope for new breathing room. Clear Tears | Troubled Waters unfolds in a moving set whose components play a part, with a musical creation, performed by musicians on stage as it accompanies or leads the dance. The atmosphere is dark, but it embodies the energy to pierce and transcend nostalgia.

In coproduction with: Charleroi Danses, Théâtre Royal de Namur, Théâtre de la Place (Liège)
