With “rencontres” Gilles Deleuze refers to those rare encounters that involve not only an exchange, but a collision between parties, leading to transformation and the emergence of something new. Seven dancers and choreographers, different performing media and two choreographic approaches meet. They become entangled in a system of interdependencies without a center, in which subtle actions find their place simultaneously. A piece of parallels, interferences and the human necessity to approach each other.
