Edelweiss, a danced rebus

Edelweiss is a piece for those who find pleasure in reading.
Edelweiss plays with intelligibility: a danced rebus where signs and references abound for their own sake.
Edelweiss treats all of its components as loved art works. It is time spent on gestures, sirens and robots, fabrics and drawings.
Edelweiss cultivates affection for the skillful dedication of craftsmen.
Edelweiss embraces techniques as forms of poetry, and artistry as a form of care.
Edelweiss is a meditation on the taste for signs and the taste of each sign, when signification is on leave.
