Underneath

The piece of Aline Landreau explores both the feeling of losing ground and that of finding it again, in focusing on the different notions of foundation and (under)ground. What kind of structures are carrying us, concretely as well as metaphorically ? From which areas emerges the desire to set (down) movement and voice, until gesture and speech appear, in the temporary common space proposed by the piece ?

I have collaborated with Bruno Pocheron on lighting this work, him designing a system of communication between vvvv, and parameters of sound input, choosing color, me drawing upon the dramaturgy of the piece and designing the rest what concerns light for the performance. I have been imagining a finite place (that has been represented by the set) and made it appear unstable in a variety of ways. The choreography lead us out from this microcosm to a much broader space with a different orientation.
