Les Voyageurs, un temps de rêve - Editing of experimental film by visual artist Grégoire Korganow

The project UN TEMPS DE RÊVE is an experimental film by visual artist Grégoire Korganow, combining documentary writing and dance, which will be realised in July 2018 at the nursing home “Le Nouveau Prieuré” in Geneva. 

The project is based on the specific identity of “Le Nouveau Prieuré”: a vibrant, plural, open and intergenerational place.

The project strives to offer, through the artist’s immersion in the “Nouveau Prieuré”, an emotional porosity between all the different communities living on site. This sensitive journey through their living space will be shared between all residents: the elderly, people with multiple disabilities of the Clair Bois Foundation, the children from the child care centre, volunteer students and collaborators working there. 

Gregoire Korganow will invite residents to share a dream of theirs; based on those, he will try and develop ways to make people enter in resonance with each other, to mirror the aspirations of all generations. 

Gregoire Korganow will collaborate with dancer-choreographer Ioannis Mandafounis; together with his dancers, he will try to incarnate the collected dreams, while in the meantime, by moving, build bridges between all different departments, buildings, … The dancers will physically translate some of the dreams, and interact with people whose situations prevent them from expressing themselves, whether orally or with their bodies. 

The film "Un Temps de Rêve" will be previewed for the first time at Flux Laboratory in November 2018, and the first official screening is planned to take place in “Le Nouveau Prieuré” thereafter. 

This project is supported by FLUXUM Foundation and Carigest SA, in the name of a generous donor, with the participation of the home, « Le Nouveau Prieuré », the Bureau Central d’Aide Social, the Foyer de la Fondation Clair Bois, the child care centre Espace de Vie Enfantine de la commune de Chêne Bougeries, and Flux Laboratory.
