What can we expect from the unexpected? What can we recognize in the chaotic, in a world governed by unpredictability? Drawing on the aesthetics of street and contemporary dance, PAPILLON juxtaposes three solos and a live experimental soundtrack in a complex trio that explores the delicate balance between order and disorder.
