When two dance companies that use urban space as the framework for their show come together and speak of love.

On the occasion of a wedding, characters parade about discussing romantic relationships. Rich or poor, working class or aristocrats, educated or uneducated, they all come with their love stories.


Combining song, percussion and circus acrobatics, this is a hymn to love that explores the thousand facets of romantic relationships. The artists have envisaged several scenarios linked to the event: well-behaved and wild weddings, weddings of fear, murderous passion, the ardour of the young groom.

Nowadays, with people questioning the idea of the couple, with feelings sometimes exhausted so fast or lasting only as long as the passion, the companies have come together to speak of love. Not with words, but with the body and with dance, with the street and the public arena.
