OUI DANSE not only presents dance which pushes the limits of physicality, imagination, and artistry. It also places on stage human beings with their real struggles, raw emotions, strengths and flaws, for all to view and identify with. The movement is unguarded and marries risk with a visceral connection to emotion. This approach brings humanity to the story... a humanity that, in the end, is always looking for love.
