Loss-Layers is an audio-visual performance of contemporary dance, a fight that questions situations of loss (balance, bearings, control, identity) in a hostile world. This combat is played out in a subjective time span, contracting, constantly accelerating, in overdrive due to pressure. The surrounding atmosphere is intense. There is nothing to hold on to in a moving world.

Three elements are simultaneously developed: sound, image and body. The images seep into the body. The audience can no longer decipher what is real from what is not. The spectator is lost between illusion and reality. Doubt and fright gradually set in, inducing the spectator to notice tiny significant details and enter into a feeling of resistance or acceptance in front of overflow.

Loss-Layers is a series of situations, actions and images about the fear of the loss of identity - about who you are and who you must become to be able to live in an antagonistic world.
