"Les Héritier⋅x" is a trio performed by Évo Mine Lambillon, Pierre Piton and Stélios Lazarou, electronic musician, and Early music expert.

The performance observes Orchésographie, the first manual of dance and choreographic writing, produced by Toinot Arbeau (1588). In this manual, Toinot Arbeau, Jesuit priest, mathematician, and dancing master, teaches his disciple, a young lawyer, the art of dancing. At the critical point where dance finds its new destiny as choreography, lies the joint work of a lawyer and a priest. This is a powerful founding duo for considering choreography's historical relationship with law and authority.

Using this historical document as a starting point, the performance unfolds between documentary restitution and musical and choreographic rewriting, while observing the resonance of such a work in our contemporaneity.
