Creation file

With this performance project we offer a collection of situations which we construct and deconstruct in front of an audience using our bodies, objects, materials, sounds, space and a given time. We are workers, performers, spectators and even objects, thus constantly playing with our functions.
As artists we propose a modest, quirky and curious investigation rather than a firm statement, offering a detailed observational mode of situations going from the most mundane to the most fascinating. We are looking for openings, and surprises, for the ambiguity between the abstract and the absurd, the body and the object, the spectator and the performer, the man and the woman, the musician and his music, the mirror and the window, lightness and despair, coexistence and autonomy, and generosity and mistrust. We also intend to forget momentarily our own labels of dancer/performer (Ruth Childs) and musician/performer (Stéphane Vecchione.) We seek an exchangeable, ephemeral and recyclable status.
