J’aime (2004)

J’aime explores the joy inherent in dancing, being observed while dancing, and observing dance. This high-energy dance performance to techno music by DJ Assault of Detroit, creates an experience of shared sensuality. Juren and Chauchat move easily and precisely, transforming boisterous dance into a choreography governed by passionate discipline. Their performance not only results in a model discotheque created live on stage, but also composes a neatly structured tale of and about movement, music and the strong female element therein.
