Focus : New Perspectives (2018)
What is at stake in this reading / performance Focus : new perspectives is the question of the body as a place of resistance. The approach of a black body that is going against preconceived ideas. This is a body playing with identification systems, aesthetic, social and even political codes that are being projected on it. During the show, this body reveals itself as a space of the possible, of the possibility ofmetamorphosis, of transformation.
Without a landscape, without a territory to invest or conquer, this black body takes leave of a possible narrative, historical or social climate to simply stick to the mere fact of its presentation.
Focus : new perspectives, it is the projection of a body forward, the resistance of a body that fights against the frozen state of the “finished product”
