The Primary Gesture
Aline Landreau / Antoine Monzonis-Calvet
In a minimalist drift where sound and light phenomena shape the environment, multiple and sometimes tiny interactions with a place unfold, from indifference to incorporation.
Le Geste Primaire summons visions, persistence, sometimes cinematographic and photographic, so that the gestures that populate our interiors, these primordial spaces of retreat, become observable.
In this way, a relationship with habitat is redrawn, a border space between interiority and exteriority, just as much as the founding notion of perspective.
In this collaborative project, where roles and functions themselves seem slippery, it is indeed a question of disturbing the point of view, this enigmatic place from which we look and listen, or even project, remember and fantasize.
Back to Vanarasi
Just as reality is recreated each time the past is reformulated, atone seeks through the Back to Varanasi project to retrace its sound universe and to reconstruct the present.
Always using the same tones, rhythms or melodic scales in the creation of this project, he puts them on stage to the test of distortions, filtering, effects and remixes.
sluggishness plays not on stage but behind images, which are the blurry memories of trains, streets or faces.
Back to Varanasi, it is the desire to return to travel in the streets of this mythical city of India. And we travel perhaps just as much by projecting ourselves into the idea of leaving or into the stories fabricated upon return.
Composing music also means projecting yourself into what you could develop as sound material, and telling what you experienced while playing it. The moment when we play it escapes us ceaselessly and we can only try in vain to find it.
Baptiste Sorin / Delphine Le Goué
A performance, a sermon.
The starting point is an electronic mix of Osunlade “Yoruba classic Mix”, in which a remix of the text of HMSN “Just True House People” touched me.
These words evoke the potential spaces of freedom offered by dance and music. They let us glimpse a field of possibilities where all identities are admitted.
The first step was to learn and understand this English-speaking text. Then to incorporate these words in order to transmit them, to make it exist. Give them a shape, materials, one or more bodies.
Delfine Le Goué will accompany the performance with a live musical composition.
DJ Paulette Sauvage
night city walk
2 hours 30
To slip into the time of the night, to watch for those who sleep, to walk between the impermanence and impertinences of the city. Glean daytime sensations, the states of a wavering group, ephemeral cards and random music.
Come back with the image of a floating world?
Dress code: headlamps & comfortable shoes
Waving - oceanic practice
perceptual and choreographic practice
For the choreographic project Waving, “oceanic practices” are developing, that is to say dance practices that combine perceptions, movement, imagination and oceanic feeling. An exploration of his body-environment in relation to the mass-ocean and the entities that compose it. An awakening in the depths?
[incantation] You, me and the cello
About 1 hour
"When the world which immediately surrounds the individual does not suggest anything out of the ordinary, when it seems to allow him to continue his habits (being indifferent to his designs and constituting neither a great help nor a hindrance), we can say that the individual experiences appearances as 'natural' or 'normal'. "
GOFFMAN Erwing, The Staging of Daily Life II - Relationships in Public p. 228
performance / reading
Anaïssss is a choreographic performance freely inspired by the Journal of Love by Anaïs NIN. Woman of letters, known in particular for her erotic literature, Anaïs NIN rubs shoulders with the intelligentsia of the 1930s, and develops romantic, artistic or analytical relationships with figures such as Henri MILLER, Antonin ARTAUD, Otto RANK ...
In her journals, she engages in fine and sensitive analyzes of her relationships, her neuroses, her artistic and literary commitments. It offers day-to-day research around its desires, its paradoxes, its mechanisms of thought and action.
Pauline BROTTES meets the writing of Anaïs NIN and perceives in her words a perpetual struggle to legitimize her freedoms in her own eyes and in the eyes of others. She is thus struck by the great topicality of her fights, which she assimilates to a Queer approach, and decides to give substance to her words. She starts from the premise that Anaïs Nin is a woman who has never stopped playing, with herself - questioning herself a lot, contradicting herself and surprising herself. - and with others, by choosing what she says / presents about her and by adopting different postures according to the contexts and relationships she goes through. Anaissss thus presents a female character who plays at embodying different levels of thoughts, speech and body. A schizophrenic journey of an over-inhabited body. As well as the Love diary remains at the border between lived experience and fantasy, everyday writing and creation, Anaïssss tries to blur the lines between fictional character and reality.
Emi SH Combet
performance / recital / intimate version
Emi writes about what she lives, what she feels, about the people she meets, she also writes on the walls and on her skin. Russian Doll offers a poetic imprint of a daily posture engaged in her life as a nomadic artist and Queer feminist. Through her songs, she addresses the issues that transform her and thus shares some anecdotes from her personal mythology.
Rebecca Digne's camera takes pleasure in entering the material : action becomes matter, matter becomes film.
Unveiling, covering, choosing, looking: simple but decisive gestures.
Clément Dirié on the work of Digne
The video object is intended to be a visible and persistent echo of a sound installation designed for the dark and for a multiplied sensory environment, of which no trace remains except for a phantasmagorical map.
By offering a journey in full light of the reality of fabrics, a kind of memorial resurgence takes place, both individual and community, in an assembly structured like a weaving, anchored in the history of humanity and its adornments. , but also in that of the dance trends that emerged from this institution.
excerpts - 15 min
“Monumental” is a performance and a film. Monuments, architectures, statues, works of art are the basis of a visual score interpreted by a group of 12 performers and choreographers according to a defined space and time constraints. “Monumental” brings into play the question of the emission and reception of images. Through statuary, architectural heritage and works in public space, the project through this group of performers shifts the notions of figure, story and form. Each selected monument is decoded and restored by actions, movements and displacements.
From Texas with Love
From Texas with love is an epistolary exchange between a Texas rancher, Ted Coleman and a young fitness teacher in Paris, Pam. Despite the thousands of km that separate them physically and the hundreds of miles of cultural differences, they manage to create an intimate bond by appealing to keywords, referring images and the imagination of the other.
The work of Art
Laurie Peschier-Pimont / Nicolas Couturier
exhibition / graphic plates
The work of art is an edition concocted by Laurie Peschier-Pimont and Nicolas Couturier, from a series of eponymous workshops given within a Research and Creation Workshop at the Superior School of Art and Design Le Havre - Rouen.
This edition is conceived as a journal in several sections, with on the one hand the protocol for playing the work of art, and on the other a phantasmagoria of the artists in the form of a comic strip, made from the materials produced during the workshops.
The exhibition presents a series of boards from the editorial work, and pays homage to the sleeper as a central figure in the work of art.
exhibition / photographic diptych
Starting from the word reflex, evoking photography, Reflections is an approach in which people can see, discover and evaluate themselves, one serving as a mirror to others and vice versa. It is also a way of reflecting, through the force of artistic intervention, the image of man struggling with the degradation of his surrounding environment.
For several years, I have been experimenting with matter in photography through the use of earth, clay, and natural pigments on the body. I am looking for symbolic, aesthetically committed connections between body, color, material and the environment. I try to reflect here current issues, in particular the disruption of our intimate and fundamental reference points. This work I named it " Reflections ".
Since 2014, I have come a long way around the printing of the alternative photo. The concrete manipulation of my photographs, like my intervention throughout the photographic process, has become essential. This new practice, a real change of position, strongly influenced my way of working, my vision of photographic possibilities, and caused the emergence of another type of photographic material in creation.
Trio for Jacques
video, dance and marine documentary
In a research residence on the aquatic environment, the Laisse de la Plage de Telgruc-sur-Mer welcomed our transformations into aquatic beings. The video Trio pour Jacques is the result of a non-learned collage between recordings of these dances and a documentary by Jacques Perrin. Between gestures and words, gaps, coincidences, our eye seeks to produce links between what we see and what we hear.
This video is the starting point for a choreographic creation called Pour Jacques. Since then, we have sought to reverse the screen and make air our ocean.
