Co-creation of Satchie Noro

and Elise Vigneron


Mizu, which means water in Japanese 水, is a choreographic piece on a body of water, a landscape piece, a pas de trois embodied by a dancer, an ice puppet, and its puppeteer.

The creation project Mizu The creative project Mizu is part of the ongoing exploration led by Élise for the past decade around ice. It continues through the exploration of this material for two, intertwining bodies of ice and flesh, balancing acts, lifts, counterweights, in the air, on the ground, and underwater.

In Mizu, on the tightrope between appearance and disappearance, Élise and Satchie aim to celebrate impermanence, the fragility of existence as an ode to life, the fusion with the element that composes our bodies: water, the transition from form to formlessness, from individual to cosmos.
