The duet Anchor delves into the complexities of relationships. Playfully probing the tensions between passion and security, wants and needs, fantasy and compassion, within the life of a couple.
In Anchor, Elsa Couvreur and Mehdi Duman play, dance, scream, laugh, but above all, sing a song we all know the lyrics to.
Anchor is a collaboration with Cie Divisar - Mehdi Duman.
Choreography and interpretation - Elsa Couvreur and Mehdi Duman
Text - Mehdi Duman
