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;
– Regular motion of a mechanism or organ (…).”

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.
