Blessed are those...

...who dream of standing without walking on their lives

A piece from the Mouvinsitu project

Since 2008, the two artists have been immersed in the unique atmosphere that floats in the abandoned places. They went as far as Detroit to capture the beauty of these sleeping places. On stage, they find themselves in a windy no-man's land in which they dance and twist themselves into paper costumes. An omnipresence of paper as a reminder that our world is overflowing with images and that we must strive to give it new life. The explosive bodies of these magnificent acrobat dancers take care of it perfectly. In addition to the body language that constantly oscillates between falling and balancing, there is a clever mechanism: sound and light interact to create a hypnotic atmosphere in which you lose yourself with envy.

This show was inspired by the films in the Mouvinsitu exhibition.  In a cinematographic universe, this piece plays with conventions of representation, this time using on stage, the processes of film editing. An intriguing and eminently poetic territory where reality disintegrates through its interaction with fiction, dreams and the imagination.
