Six young high-flying artists take off with Sophia Perez to explore the question of gender. They embrace a tangible form of risk-taking, throwing their distorted bodies eight meters into the air as they reveal themselves to be whimsical, shameful, or touching.
This is not some greater human truth, just the vision of these six people. They come from France, Argentina, Denmark; they come from large or not-so-large families; they love women, men, or both; they are politicized or they are not.
We are going to hear them shout out to the world to share these thrills and tremors that are kindled within them, this jolt, this vertigo. They espouse complex and sensitive points of view, they are united in their eagerness for a discourse that is not militant but engaged. They bear witness to their generation, to the world around them.
With a tender gaze, they attempt to liberate expression, the first step in any revolution.
