Do not dispute a woman’s power; emphasise it. This piece, the result of a collaboration between the dancer and choreographer Nach, the Krump’s rising star, and the singer and songwriter Ruth Rosenthal from the duo Winter Family, engages in sensitive dialogue and builds a network between all women, regardless of their differences. 

In this meeting, two artists from different worlds and disciplines compare their two paths and personalities: The young French choreographer Nach deploys a sensitive form of dance via the Krump’s highly codified practice and technique. The second artist is an Israeli singer, songwriter and performer; she and her partner, the musician Xavier Klaine, form the Winter Family group. In 7 lives (7 vies), a piece created at the Festival d’Avignon during Long Live the Subject (Vive Le Sujet), bodies and voices tell a story, a glowing narrative of the self that is also the story of all women; the two artists become many in order to demonstrate what it means to be a women. Through the power and precision of dance, through posture, speech, narrative and music performed by first one then the other, and at the same time: the desire to live bursts forth like an exploration of new horizons.
