1979: Disco music becomes electrified to Joy Division's post-punk sound and iconic Ian Curtis, whose epileptic dance contaminates clubbers. Steeped in the memory of his nights, choreographer Christian Rizzo creates a play on the club dance at the end of a triptych formed by A True Story on Folk Dance and Ad Noctum on Couple Dance.On a golden track, woven with luminescent stars and waved with sculpted smoke, the dancers, in restrained tension, mix disco lascivious ripples and new wave nerve jerks. The intoxicating beats of the minimal electro signed Pénélope Michel and Nicolas Devos are the gesture that spreads in solitary trance, collective fever and abandonment to the pleasure of clubbing, this furious desire to stay alive.

His reflection gradually attracts virtual hands and faces that try to touch, caress, run away, catch, surprise ... Shy, shy, curious or engaging, these hands and faces have as many behaviors who question the relationships we have to each other.Hands and faces perceive the presence and move along the spectator's reflection.
