Insomnia is one of the stops offered by Alix Eynaudi as part of her long-term project Institute of Rest(s), which aims to unravel the forms of rest as they are practised in an age marked by over-productivity and the profitability of the body. As its title suggests, this dance to interrupt oneself is an invitation to slow down the pace, to come to a standstill, and reflect on the political potential of resting, an act that goes against the grain of neo-liberal productive thinking, in order to build more dignified destinies. By combining dance, performance, poetry, writing, and philosophy, she points to the possibility of new narratives and new choreographies outside the cycles of violence, oppression, and exhaustion. Take a seat and let yourself be transported by dances, thoughts, encounters and quiet moments, in company of guests Myriam Lefkowitz, Geoffroy Solhelac and Cécile Tonizzo.

“Insomnia. Nothing ever happens there. This play, a recessive miniature imagined in the shadow of festivals, of research, of lakes (of thoughts), and of acts of love, will take up residence in Salle des Marchandises at far°. ‘Nothing’ will happen there, but it will happen around a library. Dances without thresholds will appear here and there, like earthquakes, welcoming the formation of lines and cracks along our folds. To our endless nights.”
