This piece, created in 2010 by Benoît Lachambre for Céline Bonnier and Annik Hamel, also got choreographic support from Meg Stuart. The New York musician Hahn Rowe and videographer Jonathan Inksetter also joined the project. It brought together a host of media to produce a multidisciplinary work that includes video, dance, song, music and theatre. The creation process for this work called for a videographer, in order to access the micro- and macrocosms of a given natural environment, transposed on the human body. This process opened the door to the deep, fine development of the organic nature of the body in trance. It involved the exploration of the dexterity of the anatomic functions, an intense excavation of the senses, a revealing of the spaces that are unique to each person’s odyssey, redefining the self in the body. All at once, the fragmentation, the integrality and the expansion of the body were experienced, were transmitted to the audience.
