Is the human body capable of a miraculous transformation? The unusual collaboration between a choreographer and a young actor with cerebral palsy vividly shows us that it is. The work Tamar Rogoff undertakes with Gregg Mozgala in teaching him to become a dancer, despite his fears and physical limitations, leads them to unprecedented discoveries. Enter the Faun is the story of their work together, a determined and unfazed partnership, up to the presentation of the show. It is a challenge to medicine and to all the limitations associated with disability.
