About Black Out: 
With materiality at the centre of the performance where dancers leave traces of their movement on a floor strewn with black granules, Black Out is an elegy to our darker side, and an appeal for self-contemplation. The proximity of an audience to this shape-shifting piece does not allow a moment of change, however small, to go unnoticed, making one ask: is this intimacy or is this voyeurism? The choreographer Philippe Saire describes this piece as being at the 'crossroads of dance and visual art'. It bears both, a plenitude of movement and Saire's fondness for drawing.
