Hopscotch, choreographed by Hélène Cathala, explores the predicament of five individuals caught in a game where the rules are constantly changing. Confronting the reality of being part of a group, they ask: How do we deal with rules? How can we trick each other? How can we survive? Do we struggle or surrender? Although childish and sometimes unreasonable, the rules of the game reveal a framework which could be a metaphor for our lives: Games can turn to cruelty and a playground can become a battlefield, but with the but with the start of each new game, joy and energy re-appear.
