LE FIL MAUVE
In 2014, Sarah Cavenaile started to collaborate with the contemporary dancer and aerialist Veronica Cruz under the name of Le fil mauve. Encouraged by a real osmosis and their intuitive improvisations, they combine their technical knowledge and artistic talent, theatrical expression, strength and flexibility to form a very special acrobatic and dancing duo.
They have a clear artistic commitment in the creation and research and have this essential need to share this process. This non stop attitude towards their appartus lead them to go over obstacles, to ask themselves questions and most of all, find new answers. With a new movement and theatre language, they try to give a new meaning to artistic pole dance.
Here are some of their creations since 2014.
