Synopsis:

Movement of body in dance here becomes the ritual with which we try to overcome the gravitational pull: dance is a representation of the myth of flight, of lightness. And this continuous physical struggle of the mass against the attractive force of the ground, of the artist against the tireless search for answers, is the very soul of movement.

This book, in its collector's version, is itself a paper representation of movement: it is a diaphragm, a rhythm of breathing: a very long concertina that through the body of Dominique Mercy whispers "dance, dance, otherwise we are lost" (Pina Bausch).
