IC is an ensemble piece in which 10 performers « dance » political systems like social choreographies.

Sharing the same stage, same language and the same set of « rules » performers find themselves in positions and problems comparable to those we are familiar with in contemporary democracies.

What we represent and how we are represented, are the crucial questions of this piece in which a series of choreographic propositions create a surprising playground for socio-political explorations.
