Hircus

from latin capra hircus, goat

(2017-2019)

Three paths, three courses, three leading women, very stubborn.
An animal, sometimes gregarious, sometimes solitary, passes like a shadow over the three bodies.


Three pendulums, three interior musics, three different tempos.


Metamorphosis, diversions of tightrope walker symbols, exploration of space and weightlessness.


Balances, imbalances, three silhouettes explore the present moment and the limits of time.

Little Heavenly Navigation

(2013-2016)

Like all stories, it is that of an encounter.​

This is slow and gentle, made of observations, face to face and tenuous connections.

Research on lightness, rhythm and breath.

​A breath for two, a pendulum for two.

The bodies are sometimes united, sometimes untied, collected, deployed, waltzing, pitching or briefly immobilized.

​How to interfere in the other's walk without jostling them, follow in their footsteps without taking the lead.

Thread tension and attention to each other.

Simplicity, oscillation, silence, sensuality, linearity, vagueness.

​One inside the other, four red slippers slide, rise, rest to the sound of the accordion.

A show of and with: Audrey Bossuyt, Jean-Benoit Burrion, Marta Lodoli et Martin de Roos

Technique: Claude Esselen

Costumes: Lisa Onofri

Nadir (30')
Inhabited sculptural installation
(2020-2023)

"Wheresoever thou wanderest in space,
thy Zenith and Nadir
Unto the heavens knit thee, unto the axis of earth.
Howsoever thou attest,  let heaven be moved  by thy purpose,
Let the aim of  thy deeds traverse  the axis of earth!"

Friedrich von Schiller 
To be perched, to be in the west, crooked.
Suspended by time, feet or the imagination.
Challenge the verticality of a horizontal steel line.
To spread the wings.
Decide to land, to look at the zenith or to turn the gaze to this enigmatic point beneath you, across the earth, to another sky.
