DESCRIPTION – FRANÇAIS
La chambre anéchoïque est une expérience proposée par Jean-Sébastien Lourdais (Fabrication Danse). J’ai contribué au développement conceptuel ainsi qu’à la conception visuelle. Les collaborateurs étaient Ludovic Gayer (performance et conception sonore), Jean Jauvin (conception des lumières) et Sophie Michaud (conseillère artistique).
Contemporary dance experience lead by Jean-Sébastien Lourdais (Fabrication Danse), choreographer. I have worked on the development of ideas and on the visual design. Collaborators included Ludovic Gayer, Sound designer and performer, Jean Jauvin, Light Designer and Sophie Michaud, Artistic advisor.
My main contribution was to provide a conceptual approach to the visual and material aspect of the experience. I wanted to provide a third performer and not a still decor. Therefore, the material were chosen for their relationship, their enrichment of the ideas that were at play. These ideas were the “inner life”, the life of the body and our awareness of it and a celebration of the senses over the mind. These materials were also chosen for their sensuous aspects. First, copper wire, usually used for speakers, creating a link with the strong sound aspect of the show, the body’s rhizomatic systems and for its capacity to come to life with light design. Secondly, a giant latex membrane, used to mimic the ear and the systems of fluids within the body and to echo the performer’s breathing.
