At the meeting point of the public, two immobile mineral forms await the spectators... these strange forms come to life little by little, imperceptibly, in silence... Inside each one of them, as in a chrysalis, we feel life emerging, a silhouette with pure lines appearing and then setting itself in motion. Giant characters, human, shadows or ghosts according to the imagination of each one, these figures slip between the spectators, play with them, like our thoughts which give them sense...

Then these two chimeras discover each other, go to meet each other and seem to move away to replay before our eyes the different facets of the couple: the game, the seduction, the meeting, the abandonment, the union...

They do not say words but they do not express themselves less, in gestures, in dances... their diaphanous appearances, luminous of the interior, intrigue, question and lead us in poetic and harmonious dreams the time of a moment...

Then their gestures become slower, a last embrace, a last breath and the two silhouettes become mineral again... the time-space of a poetic parenthesis, of a new waking dream...
