PEAU | PRISCILLA GUY & EMILIE MORIN
With this piece, Priscilla Guy and Emilie Morin invite the audience to question the codes of stage performance by blurring boundaries. Who is looking at whom? How and through whose eyes?
An unusual choreographic proposition, Peau uses screens, video projections and live editing effects. Five performers propose a continuous mutation of their image. It’s not a question of magnifying or destroying the image, but of mobilizing technology and textiles to create a constant metamorphosis. All these “skins” collide, giving us a sense of what the epidermis absorbs from contact with a daily bombardment of images. In contrast to an often cold and geometric digital universe, technology here is a means of returning to the self and to touch, an incursion that is as close as possible to the skin, or perhaps even… beneath it.
