The correspondence of several creative lines multiplies the interpretations of this score in several voices, to merge drives and to question sense and the senses. embrace creates a symbolic receptacle which contains disparate artistic voices, transporting this choreographic work on its journey to bring relation into being… a reflection on the existence of one through another. This piece was made in collaboration with NYC artists Christina Clark, performer and poet, author of the poetry collection Selective Endangerment, and Oren Bloedow, performer and musician, leader of the group Elysian Fields.

Edmond Russo and Shlomi Tuizer were members, respectively, of the Ballet of the National Opera of Lyon and of the Batsheva Dance Company. Of Italian and Israeli origins, they place their cultural constructions in France, where they anchor gradually their professional interests. In 2004, they found Affari Esteri (Italian: Foreign Affairs), and assert a dual approach of research in movement related to a social and anthropological discourse. From 2005 to 2007 they create the Tenses trilogy : Airports (tenses 1), Les Avenants (tenses 2-3). In 2009, within the Rencontres Chorégraphiques internationales de Seine-Saint-Denis dance festival, is a site specific project for 5 performers. Their latest creation, for 6 performers, is intitled Lings and was presented in Festival Meteores in Le Havre in May 2010. Parallel to projects of creation, they propose spaces of encounter and exploration around the choreographic act and its means of fabrication in the form of workshops, specific courses and training classes.
