The body's journey
The company Pas de Dieux, co-directed by Leela Alaniz and Won Kim, proposes a year of revitalizing creativity through the rediscovery of the body as a path of research and creation. In addition to the various technical workshops proposed throughout the year, the program also proposes theoretical reflection concerning the attitudes of the actor/dancer immersed in his work, therefore opening the possibility to create with the body, spirit and sentiments as a part of a continual work of self-discovery.

Its objective is to place drama inside the moving body, rather than to substitute gesture for speech as in pantomime. Both sculptor and statue, the mime must apply principles that are at the heart of drama to movement: pause, hesitation, weight, resistance, and surprise. e.
