LA CHAIR DU MONDE (Flesh of the world)

The performance LA CHAIR DU MONDE (FLESH OF THE WORLD) is based on the belief that images themselves choreograph us, and that they have a physical impact as well as a mental one : we are fascinated by images, they shape us collectively ; and they form part of our collective physical memory.
Our consciousness absorbs them, we make them part of our flesh, and the way in which we regurgitate them in our behaviour, our emotional states is symptomatic of this.
In LA CHAIR DU MONDE, bodies become echo-chambers. The choreographic score arises out of an iconography which is the product of cinematic and pictorial production.
It is built into the dance with the artefacts of technology (numbers of images per second, editing, flow and drops of pixels, shot and reverse-shot, etc…).
Running, falling, fighting, suffering, ambushing, helping or harming, weapon-handling, or on parade : incorporating these images into the dance brings the archetypes to life.
It reveals the imitative strategies that are at work in our societies which are obsessed by the spectacular.
