Contemporary dance and performance are art forms whose boundaries are blurred, elusive and often overlapping. This is evident in "S", the spectacle by the German choreographer Sasha Walz which focuses on sexuality and dream, forming a link between two other works by the same artist ("Körper" and "noBody") and presenting interesting meta-choreic elements. The paper shows the ecstasy of the body above all by following the subject in three different scenographic settings that mark the development of the piece, then identify as the motif running through the expressive-choreic score a pair of keywords beginning with “s”. The objective is to follow the associative mechanism and avoid, in line with Freudian teaching, an all-encompassing symbolic and rigid interpretation of this “danced dream”. The path of interpretation does not lose sight of the structural diversity and inexhaustibility of the object of analysis and its ability to question and express the body and the unconscious that inhabits it.
