Climax (greek : klimax, scale) – final term of the natural evolution of a vegetable formation. (Larousse)

Climax: final term, apogee, orgasm, ultimate threshold.

The climax with triumphant sonorities is doomed to melancholy, bearing the germ of its own death. It draws a horizon, an summit that always gives way: salutary disappointment. Its a lure, a provocation to which the dancer opposes an imperturbable concentration.
