Pièce chorégraphique et lumineuse
De Thibaud Le Maguer performance 2017
(à) partir brings together a group of individuals
around an everyday action: walking. A rather
peculiar walk nevertheless in that it does not
aim to reach a given place.
All that remains is dynamism, an élan, a “going towards” and the opportunity as a group to enact a live circulatory action.
This performance is comprised of a dizzying visual experience in which three people driven by a collective force are pursued by an arrangement of lights into which they intrude and through which they move. The tension set up between the dancers’ bodies and the interactive stage mechanism causes the programmed activity of the lights to dysfunction. The space draws tighter around their bodies, transforming them until they seem to jettison their corporality completely. Perspectives flip-flop and shortcircuit. Disordered, our impressions unsettle our sensations, increasing the perceptive confusion into which the piece plunges us.
