Game* : “ Pastime activity governed by a set of agreed-upon rules, featuring one or more winners and losers, and in which one or more of physical and intellectual skill, dexterity, and chance play a part ; Physical or intellectual activity with no utilitarian goal in which one takes part to entertain oneself; ; Action, attitude of someone who acts foolishly, who lets whim or fancy dictate his or her conduct; (…) ; The way someone uses something, especially his own physical strength, in order to accomplish something;
Those definitions of the French word “jeu” seem to also apply to what happens when two people meet. Clément Dazin and Chinatsu Kosakatani question the different “jeux” that can play a part in the relationship between a man and a woman. Three phases seem to appear, which they express through their bodies, their eyes, and through rhythm.
