Claudine Galea writing residency for the choreographic creation Event by Eleven by n + n Corsino.

I have been writing for n+n corsino for a long time.
It is an adventurous exploration of forms, genres and genders, that is to say, a disruption of forms and a form of degendering.
That’s what I love about writing and, moreover, our mutual freedom is also the place of our imagination.
These “passages” that I come to write and which are the moving place of their new creation, are for me like a short story, whereas they have the appearance of a haiku. The place of a probable loss of meaning when the senses of two people mingle and brush against each other.
The encounter is not an end result, not an objective, but a romantic escapade.
It is what is called a story, of which the words make pictures.
