Poz!

Matteo Sedda

POZ! is nothing other than the fruit of an autobiographical narrative sublimed by dance, performance and text. This project shows the complexity of the life of an HIV-positive person and the mental and social pressure created by the virus. Far from classical discourse, the artist Matteo Sedda is dealing with this heavy subject with light and pop aesthetics, creating a strong and vital message.

L'hiver n'aura pas lieu...

Vincent Voillat

In view of man’s harmful impact on the environment, a new geological era is offered to our contemporary civilization. The artist Vincent Voillat invites us to shift our point of view and to understand things through minerals. His work is based on geological extraction and the study of rocks by mapping their attributes, strength, vivacity and history.

Je voudrais parler de Duras

Julien Derivaz

Yann Andréa, 30 years old, lives a tumultuous love affair with Marguerite Duras, 38 years his senior. The love of literature and flesh got the better of these two bodies in this relationship that was as explosive as passionate. Je voudrais parler de Duras (I would like to speak about Duras) is a text that begins as a curtsy to literature but is very quickly replaced by an assessment of a fragment of humanity

Beauty Kit Focus Group 

Isabel Burr Raty

Participatory Lecture Performance

The artist presents the beauty bio-products that she conceptualized and manufactured using the genital juices harvested in her Portuguese and Dutch Farms. Conjugating medical and ancestral perspectives, she exposes how the nutritious properties of these fluids can replace components of cosmetics that we find in the market and points out empty gaps of scientific perspectives concerning the female body’s full agency.

The Focus Group's participants are invited to try out some of the products enjoying the benefits of these exotic unisex cosmetics, to inquire on the farming technologies as well as to advise on a sustainable model of production.

QARRTSULINI

Helene Rocheteau

Qaartsulini, a term that is difficult to decipher, comes from the Inuit language and means: "sitting together in the dark, waiting for something to happen in the strange calm that precedes an important event". Through the prism of the sacred ritual and the portrait, this artistic creation will question the relation of the woman to a situation of domination, oppression, affirmation and finally rehabilitation.

Pour faire jouer les rats

rA

Composer of electro-pop music since his childhood, rA stands out for his striking, incantatory and politically incorrect lyrics. He paints a picture in which radical and minimalist but always heady tunes intermingle. By pulling his audience into his sphere, he diffuses a liberating energy from which no one comes out unscathed.

Je m'appele Tomas Gonzalez...

Tomas Gonzalez

The performance of Tomas Gonzalez tells about our desire to reach for the light, to escape, which is often thwarted by material reality. By invoking the idols of the late 20th century, the performer deconstructs the fabrications of masculinity and femininity. He destroys the idea of natural charm and questions the production of emotion on stage before bringing the viewer to a desecrated stage.

Conspiration

Tarek Lakhrissi & Loup

Inspired by their childhood dreams, Tarek and Loup (French for Wolf) wanted to form a duo for this sonorous performance that they deliberately named . Fifteen years later, this leap backwards sounds like a sweet scent of nostalgia. By borrowing a light, naïve form, Loup and Tarek engage the public in an introspective deliberation about their lives, their loves, their fears and their daily attempts to fight heteropatriarchy.

Passiflore et Champignon dans la forêt profonde

Viviana Moin & La Bourette

This experimental cabaret in four acts sarcastically questions the attitude of the old continent that irremediably produces injustice despite the technological, intellectual and moral progress. This creation is articulated around consonant and dissonant music, tensions and abrupt interruptions sending a joyous cacophony to the audience and echoing naturally this deeply contradictory Europe.

The performance will be followed by a Dj Set of Jérémie Lapeyre from the Loki Starfish Collective.

Esthétique du Combat

Michaël Allibert

The choreographer Michaël Allibert is interested in the idea of contestation, the need for its expressions, its forms, its dramaturgies and its purposes. Through his choreographic work, he shows how bodies and spaces are subject to constraints, to the influence of power relations or power exercised by higher entities.

B.B.

Ofelia Jarl Ortega

The young Swedish choreographer explores the erotic potential of a young queer woman. With B.B., Ofelia  Jarl Ortega celebrates the power of the body sublimed by the gaze and questions the conditions of production of eroticism in a contemporary post-pornographic society. The music accentuates this impertinent choreography which relies on the provocative movement aimed at the spectator.
