MIRE

As a choreographic installation for twelve dancers, Mire develops a perpetual and cyclical movement to create an image that is as contemplative as it is disturbing, and chooses to place the spectator-voyeur at the heart of the subject by constraining them to two possible points of view. Throughout the performance, the public can freely move around the stage set, which is reminiscent of a zootrope inside which the dancers evolve.

Standing, the spectator can look through the slits in the partitions, which allow only a closed and fragmented view of the bodies. Lying on the floor in a passive state, they can discover the living fresco of the dancers in the reflection of a giant mirror suspended from the ceiling, where their own image is also reflected back at them, highlighting the voyeuristic effect. This vision of the dancers in a state of weightlessness then resembles a hypnotizing kaleidoscope, as the naked and sublimated female and male bodies multiply
