“In french slang, soufflette means blowing smoke from one person’s mouth into another’s. This is an intimate act during which one shares the most essential and yet ungraspable part of our existence: the air that keeps us alive and makes us high. To make a soufflette is often an erotic gesture; it is also a pacifying act. Here the medieval air breathing in and out our present organisms gives us a peaceful high, reconciling ancient and modern, dark and enlightened, natural and artificial.
Making a soufflette requires courage. It opens the gate to a demanding trip. With only their voices, their feet, their bodies and their dreams the dancers embark on this trip. They create their own folk made of songs, corporal percussions, ghosted dances and never-ending mutations. Their bodies become holy flourished altars from an ageless cult.”
