In this choreographic exploration, Meryem Alaoui collaborates with a group of dancers, musicians and scenographer to question the themes of collectivity and individuality from a perspective of coexistence. The dynamics created by the ensemble then explore unisons that are not perfectly homogeneous and moments of individuality that are not totally isolated. The world created by Ensemble is an in-between between collective intention and individual desire, an encounter between two states of being, two visions that have the potential to complement each other.
