Improvised incidents is a research project on choregraphy and videography that started last October at Bains Connectives (Brussels) and will continue at Plateau Nadine (Brussels) in February. It will be featured in the April 2006 edition of Danse-Cité.
The research is a questioning of the “status of the perceptible’” through the concept of the PERFORMING BODY. Is being good sufficient or is being better the only goal? Isn’t there a mandatory challenge to set higher standards to reach excellence? Each individual is at the center of a self fulfilment theme: to not lose any notions of oneself, to not renounce to anything in fear of losing oneself… In today’s society, the individual is pushed to action, speedness and performance. “To be on top” seems to be the rule.
Thus, the body becomes the object of expertise and experimentation. The surpassing of oneself is instrumental in one’s social identification.
The work on videography and choregraphy made in close partnership with Frédéric Moffet is based on the concept of action/reaction through the idea of combat and fight.
" The revolt of the bodies is in fact the revolt against the head. If the body could be comparable to a prison, it is as a prisoner of an IMAGE "
