ULTRAS sleeping dances offers a series of dances made of simple bodily themes, sustained by a melancholic playlist and playful objects. Thought as an always changing habitat shared with an audience, these dances are exposed to a both intimate and collective vision. This vision becomes a generative hypothesis for a shared way of living. In a kind of new dance theatre (or as a subtly cinematic time-image), the sleeping dances create a dialogue within the space that hosts them, acting as an energetic surplus. The gaze becomes a thin membrane and traces a passage between the inner and the ultra, the dreamy artifact and the lived sensation.
