EVE 2050-L’ŒUVRE SCÉNIQUE DE VAN GRIMDE CORPS SECRETS

EVE 2050-L’ŒUVRE SCÉNIQUE DE VAN GRIMDE CORPS SECRETS

Information on the activity

October 8, 2019 to October 11, 2019

Following on the EVE 2050 (2018) web series and digital installation, Van Grimde Corps Secrets now brings this choreographic, scientific and philosophical exploration of the
human body to the stage. Eight dancers of diverse origins make their way through an immersive, interactive environment that evokes a connected humanity, where multiple possibilities coexist: genetic mutations, cohabitation of human and artificial intelligences, dreams of immortality, digital survival…. Driven by reflections on the advances being made in AI, this concluding part of the EVE 2050 project points to the advent of a new species, a new take on the eternal question of our place in the mystery of the cosmos.
