Four dancers on stage, four different personalities, lives and stories are assembled on the same time in the same place.
Only the coincidence let some share movement appearing and allows the Parallel Lines some moments crossing each other.
The theme of the choreography is the impact of coincidence on people's life and their connection to each other.
We coexist parallel, and sometimes our ways intersect... by accident? This question is in accord with Paolo Fossa's working method: 3 different choreographies (two Solos – one Duo) have been developed in parallel and came simply in the end together on stage. Luca Canciello has especially composed the music for the piece and plays it live.
Carine Zimmermann has kept with her sketches some key-moments for a background projection.
Lignès Parallèles has premiered on April 26th 2009
