Sueños is a two-headed self-portrait and choreographed performance by Elli Medeiros and Mickaël Phelippeau.
The only thing he knew about her was a song: Toi mon toit. The only thing she knew about him was a series of photographs: the bi-portraits. During the bi-portrait Elli M. in 2008, he discovered an artist and a woman with a prolific career. In 2011, he invited her to work on a two-person choreographic project. She accepted the invitation and suggested a title: Sueños (“Dreams” in Spanish, because he liked the sound of Elli’s mother tongue) as a means of organizing and staging both of their dreams… “the dreams you have while sleeping, and those you have when awake…”
The premiere took place in Febuary 2012 at Quartz, Brest, during DañsFabrik festival.
