An experimental dance project whose French choreographer has been involved for years in research in gesture in weightlessness. Kitsou Dubois, who has worked with the French and European space programs, has also received grants to visit NASA in Houston, to take a parabolic flight at the City of Stars in Russia, and to a 2-year residency in England on dance and new technologies. Her research is oriented around the sensitivity to interior sensations necessary to control movement in zero gravity. She leads unique training programs under water in swimming pools; the videos of these experiments are incorporated in her public artistic presentations.
