©Tristan Brand Cherepaka
Original idea and performance: Andreane Leclerc. 
The death of a turtle with a body made of flesh and a shell: the animal embodies the duality between the eternity of his shell, spanning time, and the death of his flesh, that breaks down over time. 'Cherepaka' also symbolises the tension that exists in humans between their aspirations for eternal life (an immortal shell) and the mortality of the animal flesh. The show is inspired by the work of Francis Bacon and aims to deconstruct the spectacle of contortion to make a dramatic script out of this acrobatic language.
