Contemporary dance was born from the experiences of the avant-gard of the Seventies. Since some years this form of dance is the more and more present in theaters and studios. Hip Hop, Buto, acrobatics are just some of the different genres of contemporary dance. Its inclusion in the urban and natural environment reveals a new esthetic and a new relationship with the audience.

The video is divided in 7 parts :
- body in the air, body in the water

- New landscapes
- Motors and work areas
- Hephemeral and Heritage
