Le projet qui tourne
Unravelling fronts. Le projet qui tourne is the perpetual revolution of bodies, space and sound. We take an affirmative stance in regards to three-dimensionality. Without succumbing to vertigo or momentum, we catch each other always leaving and returning to literally celebrate the multiples faces of relationships in performance. We hope to find new ways of relating and creating meaning that isn’t contingent on face-to-face exchange.
