Buddha Garden, Express Avenue Mall
“Cette immense intimité” is a site specific solo that requires the dancer to perform in a public space (outdoor or indoor), on a 20-meter-high wall which surface serves as a screen on which images are shown and transformed live. The female dancer uses an elastic rope to sway up and down the wall, as well as across it. This plane, which has never recorded a step, this free space in town, invisible, is the site of a sensory and gravitational experience for spectators. Body and images become one.Choosing to present a solo is asserting the performance’s singularity and questioning the body in suspension in its relation to a wall. Thanks to a technical system, these perceptions, usually subtle and personal, are made obvious for everyone to see and the choreography finally emerges from images and moves combined. The Méta-Mallette (software developed by PUCE MUSE) provides an intimate link of causality between dance and image in the service of the «narration». Images do not create a double or a partner for the performer. They are born out of her sensations. She dances in the projection of her inner experience.
We invite you to Buddha Garden (Express Avenue Mall) to watch this truly exceptional and unique choreography of aerial beauty. Let your imagination take over. You do not want to miss this ride for the world…
