With the constant possibility of a transformation and the altering capacities of our bodies; J’ai pleure avec les chiens is a hypnotic work for five women performers.


A durational performance with multiple audience fronts. The work evokes rhythm and image, as it manifests layers of energetic states. It asks performers and witnesses to endure as it carries the room to a climax and back, over and over again.
