After an initial solo, focused on the multiplicities of the relationship with oneself, No Chão deals with the ambiguity of the relationship with the other. Taking the form of a duet, which is the minimum measure for creating community, the piece presents itself as an allegory of life in a sinuous trajectory, made up of moments of victory and others of weakness, of power relations that are continually overturned.
In No Chão, "on the ground" in Portuguese, Leïla Ka and her partner Alexandre embody a fraternity by questioning the unknown space but also the impediments and enemies, including those that are created. No Chão is part of the desire to stage this trajectory, inevitably tragic, studded with hopes and searches, of power relations. The two dancers engage in this shaky, sick, sometimes happy or grotesque path through a singular gesture that draws its inspiration in urban dances that tell of alarm, escape, hunting or threat.
