We need Space - Sound performance, dance, installation
WE NEED SPACE (2019) Sound performance, dance, installation
Flux Laboratory will welcome Julie Semoroz (sound artist), Cédric Gagneur (choreographer dancer) and Cerise Rossier (actress) in residency. They will be working on their creation We Need Space, which will be presented at the Grütli theatre, centre de production et de diffusion des Arts vivants from the 28th to the 31st of March, and from the 4th to the 7th of April 2019.
We Need Space is a performance which addresses the inner, temporal and spatial space of everyday life. A discussion with oneself about the environment in which we evolve. We need space questions an individual’s relationship to mechanical and organic time, within one’s bodily practices. This creation questions our post-industrial consumerist society and new technologies.
In a world where opposition does not exist anymore, and where people no longer have real political vision, slowing down and taking time to contemplate becomes an act of resistance. The performance does not aim to come up with answers, but rather to offer a space of emotional and intellectual freedom. To provide a moment of reflection. To elaborate a ritual.
During this residency, Fluxum foundation / Flux Laboratory will be partnering up with the MEG (Musée d’Ethnographie de Genève) to offer two participative performances entitled The Secret Hygge, based on a part of We Need Space.
