When the brain takes us physically to another place.
When the control we generate controls us.
When all chaos is calculated.
When we are a group of individuals without an apparent connection.
Exode is the result of a calculator machine in many levels. In a process of short creation of a very genuine untensity, Jeune Ballet d'Aquitaine opted for the natural evolution of the precise and calculated execution of classical dance combined with the viscerality and cruelness of a mental state led by some Codes calculated in space. All in all, a distant trip for the 23 dancers in a delimited scenario.
Exode is the original proposal that Miquel G. Font had for the creation of Exodus to Hopeland, this time taken to a more conceptual and cruelly physical level.
