CIE JILL CROVISIER / JC MOVEMENT PRODUCTION
SAHASA is a nepalese word meaning courage, bravery and daring.
Jill Crovisier's new work developed for a young audience combines contemporary dance, parkour, freestyle football, freerun and video; and encourages us to be creative.
On stage, three artists-athletes explore their abilities and talent while also confronting their fears and doubts.
They find the courage to be creative in a hard and demanding world where differences are often hidden.
As proven by science, children and adults who are able to explore their creativity are more likely to become tolerant and respectful human beings, with healthier lifestyles. SAHASA illustrates that very message.
