“… in the mountain, the art of gestures and shouts searching for the breathable heights of an unfettered space: it’s pulp shaped in the battling heat of the reeds. This space designed and opened by sound makes the interplay of its depths and surfaces, harsh matters, silence or shout, colours of bodies getting out in a breath all habitable to me. … a rainy sky under a tireless sun.” — Olivier Capparos [free translation]

in the mountain (ki ken taï) draws inspiration from Kendo, a Japanese martial art.
