A choreographic musical, PLAGE ROMANTIQUE overlaps vocal, musical, textual and choreographic scores through a cheerful exploration of performance modalities. Juxtaposing the visual and audible while riding clusters of emerging systems, the nine performers navigate between new languages and old stories.

PLAGE ROMANTIQUE is exactly what Montpellier Danse is all about. There’s shouting, running, momentum, audacity, complicity. All is new and playful, fresh and light. And it’s irresistible.
