The project DUOS / COLLISIONS AND COMBUSTIONS – A CHOREOGRAPHIC COLLECTION FOR THE MUSEUM consists in a choreographic collection dedicated to museums and galleries.
It deals with the creation of choreographic objects for two dancers, which can be viewed from several angles.
The body is apprehended as an object that produces mobile forms, releasing energy.
Each duet puts forward the meeting between two bodies,
-in the form of a collision between two distinct movement materials
-or in the form of an energetic combustion of two bodies in identical movement material
These duets are presented as ephemeral works that are part of a museum’s collection for a defined time.
The purpose of the project is to question the relationship between bodies, matter, form and energy, taken out of the stage context and placed in a museum. We want dance to become a contemporary work of art, with current bodies and presences resonating with our time.
