The Weight of Joy is a dance project tackling the notion of handicap and social innovation. It is a collaboration between European and Indian dancers, including dancers with hearing disability. Drawing from the friction of these different cultures, this work attempts to discover the foundation and the conditions for the emergence of joy, be it individual or collective. On the borders of movement, text and music, this joyful and chaotic play will reconcile ourselves with the human species and all its ironies.
