PERFORMANCE IN VITRO
At the invitation of the Vivarium Festival, Jonathan Schatz and Nicolas Canot explore the relationship with the public from an unprecedented plastic, choreographic and sound installation.
The unknown is the fundamental engine of this creation in which the artists articulate to their researches allied to improvisations, open scores with restrictions to reach a heterotopic place where space and time transform themselves and open for new hypnotics and contemplatives ones.
By exploring the dynamics of dissimulation in an indirect dimension, the viewer is invited to cultivate a poetic landscape and thus let an imaginary journey emerge.
The performance intends to access what is unknown, what is both external and internal, to modify relationships with a reality made of references and, through the senses, to invite perceptual experiences to modify the “ here” and “now”.
