It is a meeting of two performer-dancers: Pepe Serrano and Kouadio Ebenezer who will be brought together to work on mythological figures that inspire me. On the one hand, the Titans of Greek mythology, these archaic figures who lived on Olympus before being hunted by Zeus and his divine sons. And on the other hand the heroic and tragic figure of the inseparable twins Castor and Pollux.
Like all the characters I'm interested in, they carry an ambiguity. Thus, the etymology of the name Titan is, "he who lives in the heavens", but the same name will also be at the origin of the word "Satan" in Hebrew. As for Castor and Pollux, they evolve alternatively from the world of the living to the world of the dead 1.
Pepe Serrano lives in Madrid, Kouadio Ebenezer (" Eben ") in Toulouse. They share an imposing stature, their age (18 to 23 years old) and seem to me like two living sculptures, like two Titan brothers who would have been separated by a mountain, but not the one on Olympus, but the one in the Pyrenees. These giants, far from having a monolithic virility, are androgynous. As in all my choreographic projects, there is a distance between the figure and the performer who embodies it.
