Laurence Yadi and Nicolas Cantillon designed 3 watches for the Swatch art collection

According to the dictum "Dance is joy and joy is the climax of time", Laurence Yadi and Nicolas Cantillon worked with choreographers such as first SWATCH Ltd. company for the design of three watches of the famous watch brand. SWATCH Nil  and SWATCH Climax are now on sale in the SWATCH store and the online site of the SWATCH SWATCH ART COLLECTION series. The SWATCH ROMANCE-S is a limited edition released in October 2011 as a special box for collectors .....

A control experimental video was made by an artistic collaborator of Compagnie 7273 : Régis Golay, Federal

Either traveling in a gravel pit. What grabs the camera is a row of shovels. Three monsters to stop, which in turn produce three times three ephemeral monochrome with colored sand. These three sets of dust punctuate the passage of two dancers. And here we find the energy, the colors, the lines of the original Compagnie 7273 choreography : Climax, Nil and Romance-s on a quietly dramatic sound slick. Furiously against sky purple. The film is a concentrate, a precipitate of dance movement, so characteristic of Nicolas Cantillon and Laurence Yadi. It celebrates a striking encounter between body and bulldozers.

In June 2012, Joint Adventures invites choreographers, dancers, filmmakers to submit a video that develops new visual languages and aesthetic approaches to choreography and theater advertising format in 60 seconds. Régis Golay and choreographers Laurence Yadi and Nicolas Cantillon performed a choreography which was a resounding success and received the congratulations of the members of the jury 5th International Choreographic Captures Awards in Munich, winning the second prize.

Since its creation, the video is regularly shown in Switzerland and abroad.
