The Asphodel Meadows is a section of the ancient Greek underworld where ordinary souls were sent to live after death. The souls sent in those fields led an in-substantial existence, and committed neither crime nor virtuous action during their life.
Triomphe is a new piece for four dancers, choreographed by Tommy Cattin, which will bring the audience into those meadows, interrogating who are those inhabiting such landscape.

"A quoi servirait notre vie,
A quoi nos batailles perdues,
sinon à un Triomphe dont s'est perdu le sens,
et pour porter en fraude les hommes
sous l'oeil absent des douaniers -
une nouvelle beauté panique."
Benjamin Fondane, Ulysse, 1942
