With AMÉRIQUE, I want to present an experiment, that of a certain self-transcendence. I want to leave the theatre aside by working on the pattern of the island, real or imagined, to try incorporating other body movements.

By living on this island, we shall be separated from our links, redefine new shapes, emancipate ourselves from our origins, from the environment in which we grew up, from our history.

The island as an ideal of rebirth, of renewal.
