Riders of a joyful apocalypse, launched at full speed on their ethereal mounts, Laâbissi and Baehr set representations spinning and let themselves be possessed by a plethora of venerable, vexed or vulnerable personalities – in turn belly dancers, minimalist clubbers, cabaret hostesses, a Laurel and Hardy-style comedy duo, a guitar-less punk group, cowboy trainers – topographers of the body and anatomists of the impure… Gilles Almavi


Somewhere between an abstraction and a figurative representation, the duo Latifa Laâbissi and Antonia Baehr deconstruct the mechanisms that shape the dominant representations of art... amid a roar of laughter.

In a giant, unfolded cardboard box, the performers do a collage of turns that circulate in genres: cabaret, dance, song, covers, drag show, menopause dance and performance art let off the leash. From one turn to the next, the duo allow themselves to be possessed by a multitude of revered figures and personalities. This zapping between scenes has the advantage of efficiency. In just one hour, Cavaliers impurs captures the power and irreverence that unite these two dance personalities.
