A creation for a fountain for Nuit Blanche 2012.
In collaboration with Aloun Marchal.
Ine Claes and Aloun Marchal found each other through improvisation . Improvisation for them means challenging each other, a stuborn search within the (safe?) walls of a game. Still structure and humour are important to be able to play. These elements assure continuous renewing and surprise during their research on body and voice.
In their performance Riptide a man and a woman have their feet in the water, caught by an intimate world. Sometimes their steps are regognizable and brave, then mysterious, playfull and surprising. They find a world apart from each other, but the desire remains.
Passanst are caught by their world. The calm water seems to keep them together, but the riptide can be fierce.
