Quatuor – Gravitational experience (outdoor, by night, 45 min)
This project is a daydream around the poetic terms which are the objects of reasearches in physics.
The city is then the place of a gravitational experiment, in search of the sound of the « graviton », space in 10 dimensions, our tools are superstrings.
Vincent Brédif’s sculpture will create a foreground in front of the facade, it will offer an in-depth space for the dance.
Dancer’s bodies in this space can then interact with the effect of the 3D images.
These amplified ropes allow us to hear the sound of a fall in slow motion, a side aerobatic, the extraction of a body from its support. This game can lead us to invent a rhythmical dance, where all steps on the wall produce the sonorous environment, a partition. A sound device will allow us to immerse the spectator in a sonorous bath of dance.
