20 October 1968, Mexico
 

55' dance performance by Pierre Larauza and Emmanuelle Vincent / t.r.a.n.s.i.t.s.c.a.p.e
World premiere the 15th of October 2021 at Balsamine theatre (Belgium)

On October 20th, 1968, at the Olympic Games in Mexico City, a high jumper thwarted convention by proposing an unprecedented movement. After consultation, the judges approved the jump. The American Dick Fosbury, 21 years old, was crowned Olympic champion. This show uses this cult movement as a choreographic allegory of transgression.
Dancers, real jumpers and elderly people take over in this piece that shatters the boundary between sports and dance movement.

“ We all have a wall in our lives, that we
have not been able to go through, that
we do not know how to overcome,
that we cannot cross... let’s break it down! ”
