A video recording of Yves Lalonde's performances, from the event entitled A/Venture. Take Me for a Night in New York is a series of excerpts paraded before a motionless camera/spectator. Icare et Isadora II and Cendrillon : un Medley, for their part, are shot with a mobile camera. The performer/dancer gives us his ironic take on various cultural signs, easily identifiable thanks to their characteristic disguises. The choreography transpires mainly through back-and-forth movements, rhythmically set to music, spoken texts or songs.
