Note d'intention

« The origin of the project 100% polyester, objet dansant n°(à définir) comes from the desire to be able to present a dance from which the body-material is missing. I wanted to make visible the “dancing” idea that a contemplation/hypnosis time would lead to an imaginary reasoning and/or a reflection on absence. also the desire to bring together my principal activities (movement, costume, sound) into one project.

100% polyester, objet dansant n°(à définir) is a project relying on the fragility and the simplicity of the proposition. Then, it seems important to me to recontexctualise “object” every other performance. Thus, ‘hanging/time/progress/material » are modified according to the architectural place. »
