A diptych made up of a film and a performance, L’Âge d’Or is a journey offering different points of view linked to a specific reality: a choreographic experiment, made by children with motor disorders and dancers, associating bodily technics and new technologies. The film captures the emotion of the children involved in a shared dance, in an infinite negotiation with their bodies that are not usually seen in performance, and then in a set-up inspired by “virtual reality”, in which they are equipped with glasses allowing them to see in real time what the dancers see.

Exalting physical and sensitive particularities, envisaging film images through the prism of the vibrant aesthetic of bodies in motion, Eric Minh Cuong Castaing’s short film strays from a documentary towards a fiction inspired by this encounter. More than just a testimony, this film brings to life those months of the dancer-choreographer’s work in a specialized medical institute, thus becoming a free-standing, poetic work.
