2014 — 1h10

Show for 11 dancers evolving in a visual environment at the border between virtual and real. This show is a collaboration between Adrien M & Claire B and Mourad Merzouki, Käfig company.

"We use images as trompe l’oeils. We want to deform perception, blur the lines between what is true and what is false, cross the daily boundaries of reality, and reveal things that are not “possible”. We want to modify, distort and offset our relationship to time and space, just like a hip-hop dancer with his or her body. It is at that point of junction that the performance was born: the quest for illusion.”
Claire Bardainne & Adrien Mondot
