somnambules


http://www.somnambules.net

Birge - Clauss - Silhol

SOMNAMBULES is a choreographic and interactive show for the Internet in 12 scenes and their preludes. It puts together contact dance, painting, video and music.

Dance Contact Improvisation, which for Didier Silhol is in France one of the forerunners, deals with physical laws and human relations through gravity and expansion, altruism and resistance, inertia and impulse, submission and refusal, things which find their resolution in dance.
Filmed movements of the dancers are screened into scenery built from painted elements, playing with matter and transparency.
Interactive music is composed after the emotions it renews ad infinitum, confronted with the images.
Interactivity, both graphical and musical, places the player at the heart of the choreography.

This new artwork has its source in all the short interactive modules conceived and realized by Jean-Jacques Birge and Nicolas Clauss on the website flyingpuppet.com.

Five Elsewhere" ("Cinq Ailleurs") is the result of a double collaboratio=
n.
At the beginning the city of Les Mureaux and Nicolas Clauss, artist in resi=
dence at the Multimedia Culture Space of Les Mureaux, have come together to=
organize a workshop for a multimedia creation on themes such as elsewhere =
and memory.
Then five women and men, Senegalese , Moroccan, Peruvian, Algerian and Mali=
an by birth have contributed to the workshop. Daroga, Fatima, Karina, Moura=
d and Sinde invite you to discover traces of their rich universe, their "el=
sewhere".

This journey consists of interactive scenes which rebuild/reinvent their me=
mories from recorded interviews, and as well from personal objects, and pic=
tures and objects found during the workshop.
