« La Main de la Mer » is a performance made by a team of 4 dancers from the Caribbean and Amazonia and three circus artists from the Circus Art National Centre

This creation invites the public to a journey across the Antilles memory. Physical exploit or delicate poetry by turns, this play at the crossroad of disciplines lets a common body language emerge through a story paying particular attention and honesty required by History. Let's imaine a voyage from 1640 to nowadays , a common thread guiding us off the beaten tracks of oficial History. Lets take the time to follow men and women, to see the evolution of their relationship, and to see an intimate ready to be told.
