Fire me up

Fire me up

From and with Kaori Ito and Théo Touvet (2017 Creation)

After having recently met, Kaori Ito and Théo Touvet pay tribute to all the people they’ve loved and who “prepared” them for other romances. Creating with two voices, they unprudishly disclose their love “anatomy” in the form of a logbook. Fragments of break-up letters, empty promises, declarations, words of love, form this impassioned corpus. An emotional experience.


I encounter millions of bodies in my life; of these millions, I may desire some hundreds; but of these hundreds, I love only one.

Roland Barthes


Fire me up

By quite openly telling you about our love stories through our first romantic experiences, we try to reveal ourselves as much as we can to establish a genuine contact with you and sincerely share a slice of life. We also explore our taboos, our scars and our wound and the  physical encounter of our bodies in a tenderly delicate and considerate as well as brutal choreography.

Kaori Ito & Théo Touvet

The ardent title, “Fire me up”, is the fuse that triggers the love hostilities between the two magnificent dancers that are Kaori Ito – performer for Philippe Decouflé, Angelin Preljocaj, Alain Platel, Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui, James Thierrée – and her life partner Théo Touvet – specialist in fluid physics, you cannot make this up, before joining the circus and dramatic arts. Fourty minutes of pure happiness that end up in an emotional firework of sincerity and truth.
